Quarantine Quiz 3: Football

Today’s Quarantine Quiz will revolve around the sport of football. It will be a little bit of a pick and mix of questions, so be prepared. Obviously things are tough for us all, and look like they’ll only get tougher in the coming weeks and months – hopefully these quizzes can help ease some of the boredom, even if it’s just for a few minutes.

Please, stay safe and stay at home.

Rules of the Quarantine Quiz

There will be 20 questions at least, written one after the other in a list form. There will be no multiple choice questions, meaning you will have to rack your brain a little bit more.

The answers will be listed out below the questions with each question number corresponding to the answer. Good luck.
