It's a game of two halves which might leave you sick as a parrot or over the moon! Put on your favourite footie boots, grab your lucky scarf, and join us for the most thrilling football picture quiz on!

Every Saturday – or occasional weeknights – crowds up and down the country erupt as their star striker smashes the ball into the top corner, sending shockwaves through the stadium. The atmosphere is electric as the teams battle it out for the coveted prize as top dog or a spot in European competitions the following season. From Manchester City to Liverpool, Arsenal to Newcastle United, these giants of English football leave us on the edge of our seats every weekend.

And on the International stage, the best players from around the globe come together to represent their countries. It's a clash of titans, a showcase of skills and tactics that will leave you breathless. Imagine Lionel Messi dazzling defenders with his mesmerising dribbles, Harry Kane soaring through the air to score gravity-defying headers, and Kylian Mbappé leaving defenders in his wake with lightning speed.

International tournaments like the World Cup and the European Championships are where dreams are made and shattered. From the spine-tingling national anthems to the passionate celebrations, it's a rollercoaster of emotions. The underdogs rise, the favourites stumble, and every match becomes a battle of wills. You'll witness the joy of a last-minute winner, the heartbreak of a missed penalty, and the unity of nations coming together to celebrate the beautiful game.

But football isn't just about the goals and the glory. It's about the camaraderie, the friendships formed on and off the pitch. It's about the shared passion that unites fans from all walks of life, creating a vibrant tapestry of support. From the chants echoing through the stands to the infectious energy that spreads like wildfire, football has a way of bringing people together like nothing else.

If you're a fan of a particular team, you'll be able to tell which player is which whether you're at the very top tier of the grandstand or sitting at an angle from the telly – it's all in the way they turn on the ball and use their phenomenal skills to outwit their opponent. Sure, each player is required to have their name and number on their shirt, but true fans know who's who!

This quiz will test even the biggest football fan. We've blurred out the faces of 10 top international men and women football players and we want you to tell us which player they are. It's all to play for, so good luck!
