    3) @Sounak, there seems to be some problem with the wording of the question. Multiple sources quote that Kevin Prince Boateng’s maternal grandfather was a cousin of Helmut Rahn (including wiki) who played in the 1954 world cup. But the question points to his grandfather being Helmut Rahn (which is quoted by some sources which I don’t think are right). Could you clarify?
    On that count, Javier Hernandez qualifies with his father and his maternal grandfather both being professional footballers.

  • Congrats to you guys, great attempt at this!

    1) Highbury (Arsenal’s previous ground), Maine Road (Manchester City’s previous ground)
    2) This is the 92-Club. Most of you have got this right.
    3) 1966 FIFA WC SF.North Korea vs Portugal. One of the most unbelievable turnarounds in a WC match. The reason being that man, ‘Eusobio’.
    4) Kevin Prince Boateng.
    5) Liverpool’s ‘anthem’. You’ll never walk alone.
    6) Goshto Pal, Mohun Bagan legend.
    7) Illary Blasi sitting next to her star husband, Roman God Frencesco Totti.
    8. Serie A Top Goal-scorers for those many seasons.
    9) The legendary NY Cosmos vs Mohun Bagan match of the 1970’s at Yuvabharati Krirangan, Calcutta. Pele was the man the entire nation cheered for.
    10) Micky Thomas scoring in the last minute for Arsenal at Anfield in the 1988-89 Championship last match of the season. That made Arsenal the Champions, just leaping over the Scousers in Goal-Difference.

  • @Spaniard: Regarding your doubt – First of all, Chicharito CANNOT be the correct answer, straight-away, as he was born in Mexico.(His father was a pro-footballer too, I agree!)

    But, I agree the question framing was indeed incorrect. My apologies. Helmut Rahn was a cousin of his maternal grandfather. (Which actually makes him still a maternal grandfather btw! 😉 )
