It is by country, there is one German, doesn't need to be the most famous one. French could cry there is no Zidane and Argentinians that there is no Maradona. What Brazilians should say? Zico, Romario, Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Roberto Carlos, Cafu.... If anyone should be pissed off for missing players it should be Poland with players like Lewandowski, Dudek, Tomaszewski, Boniek or Lato 1974 World Cup best scorer. We are also 2 times bronze medal winners and if it wasn't to cheating Germans we should be World Champions. Also Hungary should be on this list with their great team of 1950's and 60's, Bulgaria with 1994 team and Stoichkov, Penev not to mention Russia. So overall Germans have no reason to cry, Gerd Muller is a legendary icon in world of football and I don't see a difference him or Lothar Mattheus and Franz is obvious choice.

FIFA uses Republic of Ireland. When Ireland split from the UK in 1922 it was Northern Ireland which was allowed to keep the designation of Ireland - not the Irish Free State. Also Gerd Muller played for West Germany, if you're not going to change the answer you could at least accept West Germany.

Jun 23, 2017
In football/soccer, there is no UK team, the four constituent countries that comprise the UK play as individual teams. This is a hangover from the fact that the game started in the UK and individual football associations were formed before the game was played anywhere else in the world.

On one hand it seems a sneaky way to play more teams, but on the other hand if they combined their best players onto one team they would be better, so it's probably good for the other teams who play them that they are divided, but being from the US I don't really care - although I do enjoy watching soccer occasionally. (But thank you, fitheach, for the explanation.)

+1
level 67
Jan 18, 2017
Unfortunately Weah never got the chance to show his skills on the international stage. Liberia never qualified for the world cup and most football fans (like myself) know about Weah's teams in Europe and about him breaking the nose of Jorge Costa in reaction for Costa's taunts, but Weah was not referred to as George Weah from Liberia.

England and Northern Ireland AREN'T "countries". So, UK should be accepted both for Rooney and Best. I, of course, typed in the end England and Northern Ireland for them, in order to get the points awarded for this quiz, but I see so much strictness in all the other quizzes regarding what is and what isn't a country that I just don't understand why this one, whose description clearly reads COUNTRY, accepts England and N.Ireland in this case.

level 71
Jun 23, 2017
"Country" does not necessarily equal "sovereign state" (according to Wikipedia, "England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom"). This quiz doesn't ask for sovereign states, but for national teams, as stated in the description.

FIFA, the governing body of world football, currently has 211 national members, including 23 non-sovereign countries. These include Bermuda, Gibraltar, Hong Kong, Macao, Guam, Puerto Rico, Tahiti, Palestine, Cayman Islands, USVI. Just 7 fully independent states are NOT members, including Kiribati, FS Micronesia, Vatican City and Monaco.

Aug 12, 2019
100% agreed. I knew all of them, excluding Mia Hamm which I guessed to be American (rightfully so) and still don't think its appropriate to add a female football player here with all the male players but Doctor Khumalo had me furious. After a bit of googling I realized the only reason he was on this list is because he played in the United States for Columbus Crew. With this logic you could insert any Rwanda or Mali player that played one season in any European Top-5 league and have people guess his country. It's impractical and not appropriate for this quiz.
