Quiz! Can you name all 27 Community Shield goalscorers from the past decade?
Is the Community Shield a pre-season friendly or an official game? It's a question you’ll get a different answer to depending on who you ask. If, for example, you ask Jose Mourinho after his side has won it, then it’s very much a trophy; part one of a potential treble, no less.
If you ask Jose Mourinho after his team have lost such a game, then it’s a meaningless friendly we'd imagine. Less than a friendly. A total nothing. Shrug.
Still, whether you count the game as official (spoiler alert: it isn't) – and the Community Shield as a trophy – it definitely pulls in the crowds. 80,000+ regularly rock up to Wembley to see the Premier League titlists play the FA Cup winners in the showpiece event. In this case, Manchester City can't play themselves so Liverpool will be dragged down to London this weekend for a kickabout.
These 27 players are the ones who’ve made their mark on that stage. Each has scored a goal in the past decade of Community Shield matches – and we’re giving you six minutes to name them. Let us know how you get on @FourFourTwo – and challenge some friends while you’re at it. Ta!
