Quiz: can you name the footballer based only on his Wikipedia page?

We’ve probably all wasted hours on Wikipedia researching the careers of obscure footballers.

You can discover just about anything about any relatively well-known player.

Who they played for, how many games they played, how many goals they scored, their transfer fees, their personal lives. Yeah, it’s an information rabbit hole when you’re supposed to be doing something a little more productive.

If you know exactly what we’re talking about, you might do pretty well on this quiz.

We selected 20 footballers at random and visited their Wikipedia page. Can you identify the player on his professional career alone?


Some are relatively easy. Some are pretty tough.

But do you know your professional career well?

Here is the scoring system:

  • 1-5: Embarrassing effort
  • 6-10: You are not an expert
  • 11-14: Well done
  • 15-19: You know your stuff
  • 20/20: You are either a cheater or a genius

Let us know how you fared in the Facebook comments section after completing the quiz.

And we’ll give you a little hint. The stadium in the background of each question relates to the club where the player has played in their career. That’s if you can identify the stadium …

So, without further ado, let’s see if you are a soccer con artist or a soccer genius.
