Can you name the first all-foreign Premier League starting XI?


On Boxing Day 1999, Chelsea became the first team in Premier League history to name a starting XI consisting solely of foreign players – but how many of the 11 can you remember?

The team was made up of players from nine different nations, none of them England, as Gianluca Vialli’s Chelsea ran out 2-1 victors at Southampton.

Think you can name the whole team? You’ve got seven minutes to prove it. Good luck and don’t forget to tweet us your score @planetfutebol.
