When Tasha, a teaching assistant, headed off to appear on UK general knowledge game show Pointless, her boyfriend Alex had one piece of advice. "If there's a question about football," said the Celtic fan, "just answer Henrik Larsson."

Sure enough, having battled through two rounds of the BBC quiz to reach the final alongside her friend Jo, a student nurse, the question duly came up. Can you name somebody who scored a goal at UEFA EURO 2000 that none of the 100 people who were asked came up with?

"Henrik Larsson," they replied. It earned them nearly €3,000.
