QUIZ: Can you name each player in Manchester United’s squad for Wayne Rooney’s debut?

Hint: One of them was Wayne Rooney

Simon Lloyd

Right, let’s get to the point.

Wayne Rooney could be on the cusp of leaving Manchester United. You might have heard.

To mark what might (but probably won’t) be an imminent end to his stay at Old Trafford, we’ve decided to look back at the night he first turned out there in a red shirt.

That night was September 28, 2004, when Sir Alex Ferguson’s side faced Fenerbahce in the Champions League. Rooney bagged himself a hat-trick, and the Turkish side were on the wrong end of a 6-2 battering.

But never mind all that. For a chance to win absolutely nothing, we’d like you to tell us who was named in United’s 18-man squad that night. We’ve been good enough to give you the three letter country codes of each player’s nationality to make things slightly easier. Aren’t we kind?

You’ve got five minutes to try and remember. Off you go.

Off you go…
