Be honest, you fell for it as well, didn't you?
If you were on Twitter or Facebook trying to kill a few minutes while being bored at work yesterday, you may have come across a certain football quiz question.
It was a piece of trivia that even those boffins at Opta would have been bamboozled by. So what was so confusing about it and why could no one answer it?! Well, just have a look at the question, it really did have everyone scratching their heads and getting a bit mad at the world.
Can any other football nuts answer this?! It's doing my swede in! pic.twitter.com/HKa0wVXbU7— Michael Churm (@mikechurm82) November 26, 2015
I'll admit it, I was sat trawling through squad lists of Tottenham, Queens Park Rangers and Aston Villa in the early 2000s.
With everyone suggesting David Beckham, Nicholas Anelka and my personal choice, Robert Prosinecki (I was well off..), the writers of the question decided to own up.
It turns out that the question was, in fact, a fake and was made to wind up a mate – and every football fan last night!
We all fell for it as well and even Crouch acknowledged that he had been well and truly done by the cheeky pranksters and their fake question.

Don't you all feel like right idiots now...? I do.
