    World Cup Trivia Thread

    This one isn't strictly World Cup but quite interesting anyway.

    Name the 8 England players to have worn the number 9 jersey at a major tournament since 1990?

    Alan Shearer (Euro 96 & 2000, World Cup 98)
    Robbie Fowler (World Cup 2002)
    Wayne Rooney (Euro 2004 & World Cup 2006)
    Andy Carroll (Euro 2012)
    Daniel Sturridge (World Cup 2014)

    All correct.

    Beardsley (World Cup 1990) is also correct.

    Looking for England's number 9 from Euro 92 and World Cup 2010 to finish the question.

    Having a blackout on both. Understandable for 92 but 2010 is pretty poor. Though I have tried to wipe that WC from memory

    Did Ian Wright go Euro 92? Him perhaps though I'm not confident.

    Peter Crouch for 2010???

    Peter Crouch is correct. Just the Euro 92 dud to get.

    Nope. Unbelievably he was only capped once when at Rangers, IIRC in some pre Euro 92 friendly. For reasons unknown, he was promptly binned and never spoken of again.

    Good guesses but they wore numbers 18 and 16 respectively.
