Inquizitivity – Quiz 23

Chain-Quizzing ©TheHardTackle is back for another edition. The rules and points system are the same as in the previous quizzes. 10 Points for every correct answer. Q 6 & 7, Q 8 & 9 carry 50 points each. Q 10 carry 100. All the best.

Question 1:

‘A’ has won the Premier League medal twice. A fantastic player at Fulham, ‘A’ was bought by a big club. He left that club 4 years later to play at another English club in a ‘pay-as-you-play’ deal. A prolific header of the football, ‘A’ could not play the final of the FIFA World Cup due to suspension.

Question 2:

‘B’ started his senior football career at the same club ‘A’ started his. Though, born in Paris, he plays his international football for an African country due to his origins. ‘B’ plays for a London-based club now. Before which he played for a club for just one season and was also named that club’s best player of the season.

Question 3:

‘C’ has managed the country for which ‘B’ plays for. A defensive midfielder during his playing days, ‘C’ was a decent goal-scorer too; he played mostly for clubs of his country. He was part of the legendary football team in the early 70’s which won many European honors.

Question 4:

‘D’ played three years of his initial senior career for the club which ‘C’ once managed for 2 years. A very injury-prone player, ‘D’ moved to a famous club in England. He had a troubled relationship with his previous manager. He represented his country in this World Cup and was a solo-striker for them in almost all matches.

Question 5:

‘E’ was once famously ‘knocked down’ by ‘D’ leading to a red card for the latter. He has played 92 times for his country. The player, whom he replaced when he started playing for his country, is probably the greatest ever to play for his country. A very tall player, he has played 5 years each for Sunderland and Aston Villa.

Question 6 & 7:

Identify (‘F’) and Connect (‘G’) the footballers.

Question 8 & 9:

Bayern Munich, Feyenoord – 13

Reading, Panathinaikos – 12

What is the ‘Number Connect’ with the above clubs? (‘H’)

Question 10:
