World Cup Venn: Day one

World of Sport

Welcome to World Cup Venn! It's a daily World Cup quiz that's trickier than Cristiano Ronaldo's dribbling, sharper than a Lionel Messi pass - and dafter than the idea of Wayne Rooney on Mastermind.

Zinedine Zidance, Mal Donaghy and Ray Wilkins

Every day throughout the tournament we'll bring you a different group of World Cup players, teams or venues all linked by one thing. All you have to do is figure out what it is that links them.

We start off with a legendary trio of players, all three of whom were legends for their respective countries.

Answer:Zinedine Zidane (France), Mal Donaghy (Northern Ireland) and Ray Wilkins (England).

They were all the first players for their respective nations to be sent off at a World Cup. 

Come back tomorrow at 8am for another World Cup Venn!
