Quiz! Can you name the Brazilians with 20+ Premier League appearances?
Few people outside of Coventry will remember Isaias Marques Soares (or simply Isaias to his amigas), but he blazed a trail as the Premier League’s first Brazilian when he pitched up at Highfield Road in 1995.
The sexy £500k signing from Benfica didn’t fare too well in England, mind – just two goals in 12 appearances before scurrying off to Portugal with Campomaiorense. But he was the first.
Fortunately for the Seleção, many of his compatriots followed and set far higher standards . The cheery chap in our picture was among them, turning up to the Riverside later in 1995, where “it was so freezing cold that I couldn’t feel my feet – I had to put pieces of newspaper inside my boots to help warm them up”.
But that particular boy done very good indeed – as did many of the men in today’s quiz, each of whom have at least 20 Premier League appearances to their name. We’re giving you 10 minutes to recall as many of them as you can, then tell us how you did on Twitter @FourFourTwo. Good luck!
