Can you name the Newcastle XI from Alan Shearer’s last game in 2006?


Alan Shearer retired from football in April 2006, shortly after scoring for Newcastle United in a 4-1 win over Sunderland. 

Shearer had been due to retire at the end of the 2005-2006 season, but an injury picked up at the Stadium of Light meant that date was bought forward.

Still, scoring against your fierce rivals isn’t a bad way to bow out. We’re asking you to name the Newcastle starting XI from that victorious afternoon.
