Yesterday's question had a distinct sicknote theme to it. Did you spot the players and the link?

The players shouldn't have been hard: they were Italy's Alessandro Nesta (left), and England's Michael Owen (right) and Bryan Robson.

And needless to say with these three accident-prone superstars, the link is related to injuries: they are the only three players to have been subbed off inside five minutes in a World Cup match.

Nesta came off in the group stage match against Austria in 1998 with a ruptured knee ligament, Robson injured his shoulder in the opening moments of the draw with Morocco at Mexico '86, while Owen managed to destroy his anterior cruciate ligament against Sweden in Germany in 2006.
