Thanks LM.
I had borrowed quiz from another forum and 22 was the number they had found.
I will now go back to it with a huge smile on my face. :D

Peter Ward was definitely a striker, not a midfielder, and how on Earth did Steve Perryman only get one cap?

Wasn,t Peter Ward centre-forward for Brighton ?, and how on earth did Joey Barton get a cap?. I have just watched Harry's Boys in their quest to beat Germany again with some ageing England players, and it was pleasing to see how Lee Hendrie was overwhelmed to score in an England shirt......proof indeed that it still means so much to wear the three lions shirt.

I've just got around to watching Harry's Boys, I did not realise it was a return match against the Germans.
The first series was brilliant and this second series is just as good.
It was fun watching the guys re-enact bonding from their playing days.

The programme emphasised the other side of fame as a young person. They will never earn as much again after retirement and that can and has led to some mental health issues. Thank goodness the EFL is now aware of this on-going problem and are putting a lot of funds towards helping former players.
The other point of emphasis is that young professional sportsmen must maintain a more healthy lifestyle after retirement than others of similar ages. Heart issue problems become more prevalent in that group than average.
Steve Redgrave's wife who is a GP and an official medic at more than one Olympic Games mentioned that when Steve retired.
