European Cup Quiz – Part 3

Written by on May 25, 2011 | 4 Comments »
Posted in UEFA Champions League

In honour of this Saturday’s Champions League Final Soccer Report brings you a bumper quiz.

Sixty questions that cover the premier European club competition from its inception in the 50s right up to today.

The quiz started on Monday and runs till Saturday with answers to each section posted later the same day.

If you are competitive you can track your success rate, others may just want to treat it as a “did you know?” feature.

When the term “European Cup” is used it includes all aspects of the competition from 1955 to today. The term “Champions League” covers the specifics of the competition from 1992 and on.

Oh and by the way there are very few softballs so don’t feel bad.

Questions 21-30

21.    What is the longest winning streak in the European Cup?

22.    How many players have been sent off in a European Cup Final?

23.    Name the two teams who played in the first European Cup match?

24.    Who scored the first ever goal in the first game?

25.    Which British team was the first to compete in the European Cup?

26.    Who was the first British player to score a goal in the European Cup?

28.    Who is credited with scoring the first own goal in the European Cup?

29.    Which British team was the first to win the European Cup?

    No idea why I’m still trying, but here’s another shot at it. I really enjoy the questions, but I have no idea on most of these.

    21. Not sure, but it was probably by Real Madrid in the early days
    22. 74
    23. ?
    24. Angel Di Maria?
    25. Manchester United
    26. ?
    27. Manchester United
    28. ?
    29. Celtic
    30. 120,000

  2. Cacuzcatlan – 2 right. 30 more to go

  3. CACuzcatlan says:

    Dammit, didn’t mean to write Di Maria. I meant Alfredo Di Stefano, which is probably still wrong, but at least in the correct area

  4. You are right… were wrong. Answers will be up shortly. I think perhaps 0.00000001% of fans would have got that one correct.
