After giving you four World Cup nations to ponder yesterday, today's quiz question brings the focus back on to individual brilliance.

Your question, as ever, is simple: who are these four players, and what is the World Cup link between them?

Yesterday's venn presented you with a slightly different challenge to the usual: four different teams.

Did you guess who they are, and what links them?

The teams were Netherlands (top),  Czechoslovakia (right), Hungary (bottom) and Sweden (left).

And the link? They are the only four countries who have appeared in a World Cup final without ever actualy winning the tournament.

The Dutch made the finals in 1974 and 1978, the Czechs in 1934 and 1962, the Hungarians in 1938 and 1954, and the Swedes in 1958.
