2010 World Cup: The Quiz

Late as ever, but as promised the Scottish Football Blog 2010 World Cup quiz. On the night it was won by a man wearing a Spanish top going by the name of Carlos. He narrowly survived despite an unsavoury assault from the team wearing Dutch strips.

Closing date is Sunday 25th July at 11pm.

Winners will receive a copy of Martin O'Neill: The Biography (hardback), King John: John Charles, The Autobiography and an as yet undecided third football book. (All second hand but much loved).

Email entries here.

If you think this is a bit easy I have removed the two extra rounds that were used on the night. They were general sport and a round devoted to Hibs. Didn't think anybody reading this would be that bothered about them.

In the event of a tie winner will be plucked from the funnel (?) of a vuvuzela.
