    World Cup Trivia Thread - SJS Format

    I'm hoping there's enough footy nerds to keep this going, but I thought flexing that grey-matter might a vaguely interesting way to waste a bit of time. I know loadsa Off Topic trivia threads have fallen on their backsides, but it's the World Cup, people! Get involved!!

    I'm sure most of you are familiar with the SJS format from CC, but briefly a questioner asks a question (durr...) & then other posters ask up to 20 questions that can be answered "yes" or "no" to ascertain the answer. Traditionally the questioner gives a clue after 10 questions & then at his or her discretion thereafter.

    As I'm starting the thread it seems only fair that I go first. I'll make the first q fairly easy to get the ball rolling. Here's my question -

    A native of Marrakech, I hold a World Cup record that is unlikely to be beaten. Who am I?
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Well done! Straight in. Yep, 13 goals in only 6 games in 1958. Hard to see anyone topping that.

    Your go.

    Easy one.

    A one-club man, I've managed a country in its first ever World Cup appearance. I am also a World Cup winner. Who am I?
