Wow, this was quite hard. I got all of the left column Italy and Northern Ireland, then I started guessing all the prior British colonies. After than, I started just guessing countries by proximity to the UK. I never thought to go back and fill the the soccer powerhouses of Argentina and Brazil :(

I managed to get them all and have never watched a premiere league game in my life so couldn't have been that hard. But it was coming down to the wire...

I have from the very start thought that "Eire" should be accepted for the republic of Ireland.

Very interesting quiz, Malbaby. You may want to allow "Cruyff" as a correct answer, though, without also requiring his first name.

Surprised Sweden didn't make this list considering Zlatan is the equivalent of 100 men.

I was surprised that Norway beat out both Denmark and Sweden, since I think of both of those as much stronger soccer countries than Norway.

Never seen any Premier League and got them all in 55 seconds. Consider taking off 2 minutes?

Also, 3 blocks might look better as there will be an even split of 6 rows per block instead of one block with 8 rows and one block with 9 rows.
