Sam (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
I scored over 500 career goals.
I won an Olympic gold and was a World Cup finalist 2 years later.
I am the only player in history to have scored a hat-trick in the champions league final and still lose the game.
I won 3 European Cups, 10 league championships in 2 different countries and 8 top individual scoring honors.
Who am I?
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Roberto Baggio?
Jesuriya (AS Roma) 3 years ago
Di stifano or puskas
Sam (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Not many takers on this one.... Going historical with this one.... Correct answer- Ferenc Puskás (if you don't know who he is/was, read up on him- one of the greatest players of all time!)
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Aha nice one Sam, and Jesuriya on the money guessing one of those two haha. Puskas is the man, just pure class
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
I guessed Puskas earlier down there but didn't have a clue with this one. Stumped

Outside of the traditional powerhouses of Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, what is the best placed finish for a South American team at the World Cup? Which year was it in?
Jesuriya (AS Roma) 3 years ago
Paraguay  
Sam (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
No, not Paraguay
Jesuriya (AS Roma) 3 years ago
Not paraguay? Then it should be mexico or chile
ManUK (Manchester United) 3 years ago
I'm fairly certain it's mexico (if that counts as south america)
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Chile I think, Third place but I couldn't tell you the year. 50's or 60's maybe
Sam (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Correct answer is Chile in 1962. It didn't hurt that they hosted the tournament LOL!

Which English team plays at the highest altitude in England?  Where would I find the stadium located at the highest altitude in the world?
GreatScot (Rangers)(Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
In the world I believe is Bolivia, they have beat teams like Argentina and Brazil at home using the altitude to their advantage!

English team I don't know maybe Newcastle @ St. James's park?
Sam (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Not St. James' Park.... A little addendum- talking only about teams in the Premier League or Championship
You are on the right track with Bolivia...
ManUK (Manchester United) 3 years ago
English teams, are we talking premier league or any english team?
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Perhaps in Peru for the world question
ManUK (Manchester United) 3 years ago
I think it's Equador, they have some majorly high stadiums
Sam (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Highest altitude stadium in England- the Hawthorns, home of West Brom. (168m above sea level)

Highest stadium in the world- Estadio Hernando Siles in La Paz, Bolivia, which stands 3,637 m above sea level

Jesuriya (AS Roma) 3 years ago
Babayaro at 16 years. The younger one of babayaro brothers remember then both playing for nigeria. Not like botang brothers facing each others. Lol
Sam (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Jesuriya on the money.... Celestine Babayaro is the right answer.
Won a gold medal at the 1996 Olympics with Nigeria.
First played in the champions league with Anderlecht, and became the youngest player to receive a red card in the UEFA Champions League when he was sent off in a match between Steaua Bucuresti and his club Anderlecht (1-1) at an age of 16 years and 86 days
Sam (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
I began my playing career at Corinthians in Brazil as a defender.
I moved on to Sporting Lisbon in Portugal, where I made 37 appearances.
I only scored 1 goal while at Sporting; however what was unique about this goal was that it remains the fastest recorded shot in history.
I now currently play alongside my brother in Germany.
Who am I?

I hold the record for most goals scored in all competitions in one season.
I was the first player to wear the number "9" in club football.
I had more goals than appearances for my national team.
The club for which I had the most appearances erected a statue of me outside their stadium in 2001.
