1:C - The previous year’s winner always chooses the menu., 2:D - Fowler, true to form, had a disastrous first round, carding a four-over 76., 3:B - Funnily enough, neither player has won the Masters., 4:C - Norwich City, Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland have won it five times each., 5:C - The Rangers manager Philippe Clement said his team were willing to play the game "on Mars" if needed., 6:C - “JFK.” No prizes for guessing what the middle letter stood for., 7:B - They won an entertaining final 149-145 on aggregate., 8:D - Daly started out at Leeds United before making the move to the US. She is now playing for Aston Villa., 9:C - The World Athletics president Seb Coe announced the plan award prize money, arguing that the Olympics generates revenue and some of that should be shared among athletes. “While it is impossible to put a marketable value on winning an Olympic medal, or on the commitment and focus it takes to even represent your country at an Olympic Games, I think it is important we start somewhere and make sure some of the revenues generated by our athletes at the Olympic Games are directly returned to those who make the Games the global spectacle that it is,” said Coe., 10:A - Nottinghamshire were the only team to lose., 11:B - Winning is overrated., 12:B - Corinthians take the ban very seriously. In 2021, the club fined their striker Jo for wearing green boots. Jo later said the boots were actually “turquoise blue”, adding: “I would never use green boots because of my history with Corinthians, a club I have loved since I was little.
