Nice quiz some interesting questions and answers. One thing I'd note: An alternative answer to the "which is the odd club out" question - Whitecaps are the only team not from the capital city of their country.

Diving - By your logic Cardiff are playing in one of there National leagues?
May 7th, 2011 at 17:10 GMT
ColeStar - until Wales declares independence making Cardiff a World capital equal to Rabat & Wellington, those 3 cities aren't really the same thing (note, this was originally posted before the comment above, but I deleted it to rephrase while that comment was being posted)
adrian - my only point is that Wales is not a country by the same definition that New Zealand, Morocco & Canada are (ie sovereign entities with no higher governmental structure), so Cardiff is not a capital in the same way Wellington & Rabat are since it is not the head of an entity that fits that definition. However league divisions are different than political divisions, and the Welsh league is equal in standing to the New Zealand & Moroccan leagues.
on another note, I would say that, although not inaccurate, it is somewhat misleading to say Vancouver plays in another country's league since the MLS is the top of both the USA's and Canada's league ladder while Cardiff & Wellington play outside the league structure they would otherwise be a part of, geographically

ColeStar - Valletta is the capital of Malta, not Rabat.
May 7th, 2011 at 20:52 GMT
diving - Wellington Phoenix wouldn't exist if they couldn't play in the A-League. There are amateur teams in Wellington playing in the NZFC and Capital Premier League, just as there are other Vancouver teams playing in Canadian leagues. What Wgtn, Cardiff and Vancouver has in common is that they choose to play outside their own country becaude they want decent competition. I've just realised you are all assuming that Rabat Ajax are from Morocco. They're not! They're from Malta.

Tommy Barber should be accepted as an alternative answer for the Sunderland-Villa one as he actually scored the winner when the two teams did meet in the FA Cup Final (1913).
May 11th, 2011 at 02:04 GMT
Didn't know about Tommy Barber. I'm making the question slightly more specific.

The Chilean George Robledo scored for Newcastle in the 1953 FA cup final way before 1983.
Jul 11th, 2011 at 01:11 GMT
- Accept "never" for the Brazil/Germany question. - George Robledo scored in the 1952 final for Newcastle, and Ricky Villa scored in the 1981 replay against Man City.
