Can you tell the real footballers from the Football Manager regens?

Football Manager's player generator comes out with some weird and wonderful names sometimes, but can you distinguish them from these real player names?

Reuben Pinder

It’s not as easy as it sounds

If you’ve played Football Manager, you’ll know about regens. If you don’t, here’s a quick explainer. Regens are virtual footballers generated inside the game that come through your youth academy every season on Football Manager. Some will be good, some will be duds, such is life. But most importantly, some of them will have really funny names.

We put our very own Joe Gilmore to the test to see if he could distinguish the real players from the regens in this quiz. Can you beat his score?
