One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

The only question that nobody got was the player to have scored for 2 different countries at a WC. Perhaps would have been better to ask for the countries.

I actually knew it was Prosinecki, I’ve seen the question before. Was gutted when I realised! :lol:

I don’t know why Di Stefano came into my head, I think because I knew he switched from Argentina to Spain mid-career.

Stefano played for multiple countries, he was the only one I could think of, but I don't think he played at a WC, so I left that one blank.

Correct. He helped Spain qualify at 36 but got injured just before the 1962 World Cup so couldn't play.

I assumed it would be a Yugoslavia player who went on to play for Croatia so went with Davor Suker. He actually was in the 1990 Yugoslavian squad it turns out but didn't play.
