    Initial guesses:-

    Stuart Pearce - England
    Gareth Southgate - England
    Roy Keane - Munich
    Steve Bruce - Munich
    Mark Hughes - Munich
    Paul Ince - Munich

    Not 100% about Mark Hughes so can I have Bryan Robson as a first reserve?

    List of previous UN Secretary-Generals -
    Ban Ki-moon, Korea
    Kofi Annan, Ghana
    Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Egypt
    Javier Perez de Cuellar, Peru
    Kurt Waldheim, Austria
    U Thant, Myanmar (formerly known as Burma)
    Dag Hammarskjöld, Sweden
    Trygve Lie, Norway

    Was going to say that the countries they come from have all played in the World Cup, but don't think Burma have ever qualified. Maybe they have all played football for their country!!

    If a goalkeeper does it once he can be booked, if he does it twice he can be sent off. Any other player on the pitch can do it as many times as he likes without penalty including the officials?

    Believe it or not the answer is roll their sleeves up over their elbows, it's for identification purposes at corners, however a lot of keepers nowadays get around this law by cutting the sleeves off.

    Traditionally goalkeepers wore green jerseys , now unless i'm mistaken this is the colour of the playing surface and i was just wondering if there's any significance in that?.......
