Bluebeard - A fantastic effort. Especially being non English! Only 3 that you have attempted were wrong.

No's: 42- (1986), 47 - (El Salvador & Honduras), and 58 - (Alan Ball AND Ray Wilson).

Bloody well done.

Cheers - I had a feeling the El Salvador one might be wrong - but Alan Ball was definitely a Blackpool player at the time of the 1966 World Cup - he was transferred to Everton in August 1966.
