Czechslovkia is pretty easy to guess, before they dissolved they had a very good footballing history including 2 world cup finals. Denmark and Greece are probably the hardest ones to guess if you really don't know anything about the Euros since they aren't know as good teams, but since Greece was a massive shock and Denmark famously only qualified for the tournament in the first place because Yugoslavia dissolved they are pretty famous results.

Czech Republic appears as a runner-up one year, and seeing Yugoslavia and Soviet Union reminds you to try guessing countries that no longer exist. That's how I got it. I only got Greece by randomly guessing European countries after I had gotten everything else.

Can;t you except Soviet Union as Russia. Other quizzes have Soviet Union as the offical answer but they except Russia.

Agree some quizzes have it, it's a handy little add on to help you out but not necessary. Some quizzes get way too lenient with spelling and the likes too. And it would be accept not except. Rabbitohs.

I find it interesting that people expect England to do well--as if their colonial, world power heritage somehow predestines football greatness.

Inventing the game and having won the major trophy (the World Cup) also suggests they might have won it at some point.

I would say it is mostly based on the quality of the premier league. Unfortunately it does not always mean that the teams in the national leagues draw a lot of talent from their own country, but it does generate a greater affection for the sport and in that way more boys that play and eventually turn out to be good.

The history is actually rather complex - a rudimentary form of football was English, but the idea of moving the ball towards the opponent’s goal by passing it from player to player was invented in Scotland. http://keepingscore.blogs.time.com/2012/04/02/no-england-did-not-invent-football-soccer-as-we-know-it/ I take your point about the Premier League. It does seem that a lot of players in that league did go to the national teams of other countries, but you would think that there would be more filtering down with all of the money, talent, and attention that the league receives.

I know very little about football but still got 11/15 and 2 points by rapidly typing all the major European footballing countries for each answer (I would have done even better if I had remembered the existence of Czechoslovakia). I suggest reducing the time to 3 or even 2 minutes to prevent cheats like me getting points for things they know nothing about.

I know the clues are former countries, but there is normally a note in the instructions that some answers are also former countries
