Stars Wars Football XI
It’s Star Wars Day so Yahoo Sport UK has picked a football team made up of a galaxy of puntastic players.
Jar Jar Toure
Jar Jar Toure – The Man City midfielder isn’t quite as annoying as most people think this Phantom Menace character is.
Jabba The Hutton
Jabba The Hutton – Some might compare this pair’s on-the-field talents given the Scot’s recent decline
Lando Donovan – This one works quite nicely as two great American stars combine.
C3 Pirlo – The annoying robot and the majestic Italian midfielder
John Mikel Obi Wan
John Mikel Obi Wan – The former Chelsea midfielder sounds a bit like a Jedi.
Princess Weah – One of football’s famous names sounds a bit like the character played by Carrie Fisher
Ewok Origi – The Liverpool striker and a little furry creature.
Millenium Falcao – The Monaco striker and Han Solo’s spaceship
R2 Boruc – The Bournemouth keeper and a squeaky-noised robot
Steve Sithwell – The midfielder was often known for his use of the dark arts
Chewbacary Sagna – The Man City defender and a hairy Wookie
