Can you name Arsenal’s first all-foreign starting XI in the Premier League?


On Valentine’s Day 2005, Arsenal fielded their first ever all-foreign Premier League XI for a 5-1 victory over Crystal Palace – but how many of that side can you name?

We’re being pretty harsh with this one. No clues and just five minutes to name the XI, which we’ve listed in order of the formation, as they lined up on the day in what Mike Bassett would describe as a four-four-f*cking-two.

The average score to beat is 70%. If you do well, you might want to give the inverse quiz a go: can you name the last all-English Premier League XI?

Good luck, and don’t forget to tweet us your scores @planetfutebol.

Note: If you’re having problems attempting the quiz, play it on the Sporcle website.
