Football picture quiz
"The players featured here are amongst the best footballers that have ever graced the game.

Each question will be the same, namely "Who is this?"together with, a photo of, the international record of, and some text (taken from Wikipedia) about, a great footballer.

Each player has retired from international football, so there will be no current internationals.

No-one will get them all, some will be easy, some will be difficult. No cheating, the quiz is designed for you to answer before you navigate away from the page.

When you reach the bottom of the page click "Older Posts" for more questions.

Answers can be submitted to me (tim[AT]ne99[DOT]com), or you can put your answers in the comments."
