Quiz! Can you name the 50 highest foreign goalscorers in Premier League history?
At first there were 13. On the opening day of the first Premier Season in 1992/93, just over a dozen foreign imports lined up in top-flight XIs: John Jensen, Anders Limpar (both Arsenal), Robert Warzycha (Everton), Eric Cantona (Leeds), Ronnie Rosenthal (Liverpool), Michel Vonk (Man City), Peter Schmeichel, Andrei Kanchelskis (Man United), Gunnar Halle (Oldham), Craig Forrest (Ipswich), Roland Nilsson (Sheffield Wednesday), Hans Segers (Wimbledon) and Jan Stejskal (QPR).
Since then, several hundred players from abroad have showcased their talents in England’s top flight – with varying degrees of success – and improved the Premier League exponentially.
Below are the 50 men who have bothered goalkeepers most in the 26 years since, from the runaway leader with two Premier League titles, to those who didn’t (or haven’t quite yet) cracked the 50-goal mark.
You’ve got 10 minutes to recall as many as you can, then tell us how you fared @FourFourTwo on Twitter – there could be a place on our daily leaderboard for you. If all else fails, just pass it along to some friends to see how they get on.
Please note: While Jason Euell, Robbie Earle (both Jamaica) and Efan Ekoku (Nigeria) should technically feature on this list by virtue of their former national teams, they are very much England born and bred.
