How well do you know your football stars? Test your trivia with this awesome quiz!

You can spot a professional footballer from a mile away, even without the use of extra large binoculars. Maybe it's the way they carry themselves on the field or the way they turn on the ball that makes you realise who it is without giving it much thought.

It's rather helpful – and a football rule – that professional players must have a specific number and their name printed across the back of their team's shirt. It's all for the referee's benefit and maybe the commentators who are describing the flow of the game in that excitable way we all love. That way, you really know who's playing, unless they've swapped shirts at the end of a big game. Then it may become slightly confusing.

If we just posted a bunch of footballers faces, you'd be able to do the quiz in a matter of moments and it wouldn't test your brain at all. We, at, love to pose a challenge when it comes to soccer trivia and football quizzes, so we've made things a little more tricky for anyone who loves the beautiful game.

For this quiz, we've blurred the faces of 15 well-known players and it's up to you to answer each question correctly in what we call the 'guess the football player quiz'. You do want to get a perfect score, don't you?

Good luck!
