NOW TRY Quiz! Can you name Carlo Ancelotti's Champions League-winning line-ups?

You remember the Nike Secret Tournament advert (linked there, to jog your memory once you've done the quiz) – though you might better remember it simply as 'The Cage'.

First aired in March 2002 – 20 bleedin' years ago! – the advert quickly went down as one of the greatest in the footballing canon. A three-a-side football tournament held in the hull of a ship, featuring some of the biggest (Nike-sponsored) stars in the game, hosted by a stern, suited Eric Cantona? Yes, please.

And that's before we mention the Elvis Presley remix soundtrack. While plenty of these names should be easy to pluck from your subconscious, there's certainly a couple here that will be harder to recall – and one in particular that we almost want to dish out extra points for. Almost.

All we'll say is this: it was an advertising campaign ahead of the 2002 World Cup. Hush now, we've already said too much.
