Bit of a long-shot like! ie in 1970 Brazil beat England in the Group stage, and Italy knocked out West germany. This time round if it were, for example an Argentina-France final, they would have achieved this feat.

    I'm gonna guess that my guess is wrong, so I'll just ask, am I right with it being to do with the two teams reaching the final?
    No, not the final. Warm tho.

    Not the one I had in mind, although Jerry, Brazil & Argentina have all won the current one twice so it could well be true too.

    Is it something to do with the teams reaching the semis? Can't think what mind, the semi-finalists in 1970 were Italy, Brazil, West germany and U-R-gay. Hmmph.

    Something to do with the semi's then?

    In 1970 that was Brazil, Uruguay, Italy & W. Germany. All former winners, but I think that happened in 1990 too. All unbeaten, but that must have happened as well.

    Yep, that was what I was after & you got there despite my shoddy question. If Ukraine & Portugal are out all four semi-finalists are previous winners.

    1990 completely slipped my mind. D'oh. That researcher's sacked!

    Your turn.

    I feel better now.

    OK, a quickie. Obviously we all know about both Charltons playing for us in 1966, but when did we have 2 players with the same 1st name as well as surname playing in the same game? Oh, and what was the players' name?

    Wouldn't be the two Gary Stevens, would it? Sometime in 82 if so I would guess.

    Out of interest, was there ever a time when we had three Coles on the pitch? I doubt it. Shame Carlton's rubbish, or we could have had Cole at left-back, Cole on the left of midfield, and Cole partnering Cole up front.
