Play our quiz to see how many of these popular England collectables you can name

Picture quiz: Can you name the 1990s England players that these popular collectables were based on?

To mark the rerun of Euro 96 on ITV, we've come up with a nostalgic picture quiz that will test your memory and powers of 'model' recognition.

How well do you know your England international players from the mid-1990s? Or, more accurately for the purposes of this challenge, how well can you remember your Corinthian figures?

As football prepared to come home in the fever pitch summer of 1996, the nation's youngsters (plus more than a few adults) spent many afternoons after school raiding local newsagents for packs of Panini stickers in a desperate attempt to complete their Euro 96 albums - which was obviously quite some challenge in those days.

And if their pocket money hadn't taken enough of a hammering already, there were also the pursuit to collect Corinthian's miniature models of England's soon-to-be heroes - albeit less of a lottery considering you knew who was in each packet.

The Euro '96 range was the first of its kind and released around the start of the 1995/96 season, which explains why some of the figures that Sporting Life's Chris and Dom have managed to cobble together from their own collections for this nostalgic quiz didn't actually make the real squad.

Although the initial range featured 16 players in the above photo - as well as the manager - other caricatures were subsequently produced in the lead up to the summer and we've been able to include some of those in the following challenge, which you're no doubt itching to get on with after all this unnecessary build-up.

Simply click on the link or image below and you'll be taken to a quiz page at Sporcle, where you have five minutes to write the full player/manager name of each of the 28 figures that appear in a photo slideshow. Sounds simple doesn't it - and the players aren't even blurred out! But trust us, there's some tricky ones in there unless you have the full collection collecting dust in your attic.

If you want to share your score, screenshot your winning time, or your total correct answers when the clock runs down, then either tweet them on to @ChrisHammer180 or @newcol - or even email to

(PS, if you're suddenly wondering if the collection that you'd forgotten about might be worth a fortune, then you're sadly mistaken!)

  • Type the player/manager's full name correctly when they appear on your screen to score a point. Just typing the surname is not enough.
