Think you know your soccer trivia? We’ll be the judge of that. Pop quiz: who the heck is Jack Marshall? Even the trivia buffs in the U.S. Soccer Communications Department would be hard-pressed to tell you that one Jack Marshall received his one and only cap way back in 1926. Okay, that was pretty much impossible. They get easier. We give you four questions at varying difficulty levels, from 1 (easiest) to 4 (hardest).
The set of questions below is less a test of your 1994 FIFA World Cup knowledge than it is a test of your fading memory from that summer 10 years ago.
Q1: Who led Brazil to its fourth world title with five goals and three assists?
Q2: Who won the Golden Boot as the tournament’s leading scorer?
Q3: Who became the oldest player to score in a World Cup when he provided the lone goal in a 6-1 loss to Russia?
Q4: Which five players were on the field for all 360 minutes of the USA’s tournament run?
A2: Bulgaria’s Hristo Stoitchkov and Russia’s Oleg Salenko tied for the top scoring honor, with each
player racking up six goals and one assist in the tournament.
A3: Cameroon’s Roger Milla, who was 42 years 1 month and 8 days old.
A4: Marcelo Balboa, Paul Caliguiri, Thomas Dooley, Alexi Lalas and Tony Meola.
