Thank you for coming on. Thank you for coming on.
And on Phil's team, indoor hurdling champion Andrew Pozzi,
and England rugby star Alex Goode.
Good luck, lads.
And up first tonight, it is the one-minute round.

Scotland, Ireland, Wales...
Alexander Ireland we were looking for,
and George, Welsh goalkeeper,
-But you scored seven points.

Time starts now.

These sports stars share their names with types of world currencies.
What is it? What else is there?
I shouted peso!
-Did you say peso?
-Did you say peso?
I think you said Pesto.
Because everyone was shouting at the same time.
-There was a peso in there, I think.
-Oh, OK. Strong.
There was a peso, that's fine.
We have looked back. And, yes, you did say peso,
so you have a full house, the full nine points.
End of the round, Matt's on seven,
Phil on nine.
It's sports action now.
Make a note of who you see, and when it's taking place.
300 for Graham Gooch.
-She's done it!
-Game, set and match, Miss Novotna. 2-0.
Here's a try, and it's Brian O'Driscoll.
Virtually under the posts.
Fran, head down. Is she going to get the touch?
It's going to be mighty close. Who's got it?
Fran Halsall's got it. Fran Halsall's got it.
Bryan Robson's not off-side.
Can the captain ground it with a goal?
He can. That'll start the celebrations.
Cooke takes it! Nicole Cooke is the Olympic Road Race champion!
He's got it. He's got it.
Kelly comes home to take the gold once more for England.
-Holmes gets gold.
-She'll never forget this.
For the title...
It's there! That's what he's fought for all his life,
since being a child.
Crikey, O'Reilly. How many of them are there?
You must now try and match the action to one of these nine years.
Right, hold on. Right.
And, Matt, we will allow you to go first.
Gooch was 1990, was it, at Lord's?
That's tough, isn't it?
-I think it was.
-Hold on, I should know that.
I think Freddie Couples was '92, Sue.
You're going golf, '92.
Are you right?
Yes, you are. Freddie Couples in 1992.
Yeah, I think.
-Yeah, it was Commonwealth Games.
I think it's 2002.
Is it definitely Commonwealth?
No, no, definitely was, and an England kit.
Go on. Give it a go.
We think Kelly Holmes, 2002.
OK, you're going Kelly in '02.
Correct again. Well done.
-You can have that one.
You're going for Graham Gooch, 1990.
Yes, well done, Charlotte. Well done.
Look at his face!
"No! No! No, Charlotte. That's wrong..."
I was 12th man in that game!
That was our banker.
Yeah. I thought it was '93!
Yeah, that's what I'd go for.
Go on, you're on fire.
Fran Halsall, 2010.
Going for the swimming in 2010.
Well done, Andrew. Well done.
-Go for it.
We'll go for Bryan Robson, 1993.
And you're right.
-What else was there?
-What about that? What about that?
-Yeah, go on.
We'll go with Brian O'Driscoll, 1998.
Oh, is it 2000?
-No, I think that's it.
-OK, going for Brian O'Driscoll, '98...
-Got to be. Got to be.
Well, I think it must be Novotna, '98.
OK. The tennis in '98.
Good work, team.
And your last guess, Phil.
Cooke, the cyclist,
Good work. Good work.
Good work. Well done, boys.
Well done. Well worked out.
And '04, the one you were missing, the darts,
Andy Fordham winning the World Championships, that was 2004.
And at the end of the round, Matt's on 11,
Phil in front on 12.
It's time to see how many points you can accumulate.
Both teams will have 45 seconds
to answer as many questions as possible.
You'll get a point for a correct answer.
However, you'll lose one if you're wrong or you pass.
So, Matt, you can confer, but I can only accept your first answer.
-Right, here we go.
Who was voted Six Nations Player of the Championship in 2016 and 2017?

Ready to face the questions?
-Yes, come on.
-Here we go.
The Captain, the Pistol, and the Grinder
are all nicknames of players from which sport?
Which New Zealand winger was leading try scorer

Which English 110 metre hurdler won European and Commonwealth
gold medals in 2010?
Who opened the batting with Alastair Cook against South Africa in the 2017 Test series?
Erm... Everyone had a go.
With Alastair Cook.
Alastair Cook. Who opened the batting?
Wesley was three.
You got three right, two wrong,
so you score one point.
What a turnaround!
Phil is on 13, Matt in front on 17.
So now it's a choice of home or possibly away.
Charlotte, coming to you first.
-Home or away?
Who recorded her third 100 in One-Day Internationals
with 171 against Australia at the World Cup in 2017?
Yes, it was, for India. Well done.
So, Andrew, home or away?
Can we go home, please?
who won World Indoor and Olympic bronze hurdling medals
to go with the European gold he won in Amsterdam?
-It was, yes, of France.
Very well done.
-Kieron, home or away?
Home. In October, who scored the opening goal
of the game which sent his country to the World Cup finals for the first time,
a year after helping to knock England out of the Euros?
It was, yes, well done,
Alex, home or away?
-Go on, we've got to...
-We're going to go away.
Come on. Go on, Goody!
Since Bjorn Borg,
only three Swedish tennis players
have won a men's Grand Slam singles title.
Name them for a point each.
-I'm drawing a blank, no.
-That's the only one I had.
Edberg. Yeah. Edberg, Wilander.
-So we've got...
-Go on. Just say it really quick.
-Oh, Jonas Bjorkman?
You have...two points!
-We'll take two.
Bjorkman was a good shout.
Mats Wilander and Stefan Edberg.
-Goes on offer?
-Would we know him, Sue?
Is he proper random?
I know him!
Erm... Give me a Swedish name, anybody.
Eriksson. Good Swedish name, Eriksson.
No. You were going down a very clever trail of thought, because...
-Is it ABBA?
Sven! It'll be Sven!
It was Thomas Johansson,
who won one Grand Slam.
So two points there. For this next game,
we asked some QS viewers to help us fill in the blanks.
All you have to work out is the most popular answers.
Matt, you have Chris.
Who are the three sports stars you are going for?
You can ask the audience for their opinion if you want.
What would you go with?
Like it. Shout out, keep shutting them out.
Akabusi, I love that!
I think Kriss Akabusi was spelt with a K.
They are just rolling out, Coleman, Waddle.
-I will be gutted if he is on the top three Chrises of all time.
OK, if it were... Hoy is in.
-Do we like Chris Froome?
-Right, Froome's in.
Oh, nice shout.
-But I don't think people will...
-No, you don't think so?
No, I'll go with the Welsh. The Welsh are all over that.
-IN BAD WELSH ACCENT:
Where's he from, Germany?!
Chris Hoy, Chris Froome, Chris Coleman.
OK. For one point...
Never got that!
-I can't believe that.
-That means that anything's going to come up on here.
Kammy, sorry, buddy!
This is it.
I liked it, liked it!
And for three points...
-Oh, no, no.
-Please, Chris Hoy.
Of course it is!
Well done, everybody!
Six times Olympic champion Chris Hoy.
How many Majors did Chris Evert win?
-So now you know what to expect.
Phil, yours is James.
-Come on, boys and girls.
Hunt, James Hunt!
James... Oh, James Anderson!
That's a great one, James Anderson.
James de Gale.
Anyone else? Any footballers I'm missing?
Toseland! That's not bad, Toseland is all right.
Right, I reckon we're going with James Anderson.
-It's Jimmy Anderson, though, isn't it?
No, it's James Anderson.
You do the commentary!
Well, I know - I always call him Jimmy.
It's James, isn't it?
Cracknell. Cracknell's pretty good, isn't it?
James Hunt's pretty good?
And James Anderson.
Jimmy throws me off with that one.
Haskell and Milner, are they...?
James Hunt, James Cracknell,
James Anderson, they are our three.
Sue, we're going to go with James Anderson, James Hunt,
and James Cracknell.
-Good three, that.
That is a good three.
It's six points. Let's have a look.
For one point...
You said football again!
-It's all right, it's only one point.
Anderson! Yeah, we got that.
It's got to be Hunt.
And for three points...
That is old school, though.
Well done, very well done.
Five points scored, and at the end of the round,
catching up, Phil.
He's on 21, Matt's in front on 22.
It's time to play Roll Of Honour.
Let's find out whose sporting career
is under the spotlight tonight, and enjoy them in action.
20 years old, scores the first goal for France.
His first as an Arsenal player,
and one that he and the Arsenal supporters present
will remember for an awful long time to come.
Henry has run from deep inside his own half.
He's now on the edge of the Spurs penalty area.
This would be a wonderful goal if he can finish!
-Oh, what a goal!
-Head down, knew what he was about,
wonderful skills, finished beautifully.
Another for the scrapbook
of great Thierry Henry goals.
Thierry Henry for France!
Being able to play in the World Cup
and to win it was something special.
Thierry Henry, just some of the highlights from his career.
Now, let's see how much you know about some of the others.
OK, each team will face a one, two and three-point question,
increasing in difficulty.
-Phil, your team are first.
-From which club did Arsenal sign him?
Crikey, I can't remember!
-You're pretty sure Monaco?
-Are you sure?
-I'm not that sure. I just feel like...
-Are you sure?
-How sure are you?
-As sure as Jonas Bjorkman.
Well, it's only a point.
But we could do with it.
Is it Monaco?
Hey, don't look at him. Don't look at him!
Pretty sure it's not Marseille.
No. Lille or somewhere?
Why would he go from Monaco to...?
Wenger was at...
-Go on, go on.
-Wenger was at Monaco, wasn't he?
-Go on, go on.
No, it wasn't!
He was at Monaco before.
Matt, this is your easy one, for one point.
Henry became Roberto Martinez's Assistant Manager
for which national team?
-It was, yes, well done.
Even I might have got that one!
Phil, this is your two-point question.
He won the European Championships with France in 2000.
Who did they beat in the final?
-Trezeguet golden goal.
Yes, he did, Trezeguet, yeah!
-Golden goal, so...
-Yeah. Go on, that's a great shout.
Is the right answer, Alex! Well done.
Matt, this is for two points.
-Which team did Barcelona beat
when he won the Champions League final in 2009?
-Yes, well done, two points.
The whole of my career on A Question Of Sport, you've never been...
-Where have you been?! Where have you been, man?!
-Doing my homework!
And, Phil, your final question is for three points.
In which year were Henry's Arsenal crowned Premier League champions
having gone the whole season undefeated in the league?
When was he invincible?
-What team do you support, Phil?
-I think it was '05/'06.
-'05 or '06?
Can you not say '05/'06, because it goes over two years?
-I'm sure it was '06.
-I think it's '06.
-Do you know this one, Kieron?
-The... Is that 05/06, or 06/07?
-'05/'06 season or '06/'07 season?
-Oh, when was it?
-What was your other answer?
-I would have said '03.
No, it's '04!
2004, it was.
2004. No points there.
Matt, this is your three-pointer.
In the 2008/2009 season,
Henry, Messi, and which other player
scored a combined 72 La Liga goals for Barcelona?
You're like some kind of football encyclopaedia! Brilliant.
-Yes, it was!
I don't think you could google that quicker!
Exactly. Just racing away with it after that round.
Phil is on 23, Matt's on 28.
And we're ending the show with a Sprint Finish,
and you're good at this, Tuffers. You need to be.
-Up you come.
I'm never going to live that down. Arsenal, '04.
-Was it '04?
-Man, I'm never going to live that down.
-I'm going to give you a choice of category.
Would you like Australia or USA?
-Let's go Aussie.
-Are you ready?
-Off you go.
OK, the racing, the racing.
Oh, 400m runner, opened the Olympic Games.
-Yes, yes, yes.
Oh, that funny game where they wear
woolly shorts and tight shirts...
-AFL? Aussie rules.
I lost... I never won them.
-Yes! Thank you!
-No, the other one.
Move on, move on, move on.
What's that, you know? When they go swimming and kayaking.
It's not steel...
-No, it's not steel, another metal.
-What are they?
No! The rugby, they're called the...
No, the rugby team's called the...
Oh, the bloke with big feet, swimmer.
-No, the other one.
What's...? What am I riding?
-It's a bucking...
APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH
I've just never seen a swan hop.
I think it was just doing the dance.
You said Broncos, but you said Brisbane out of time,
it was after the whistle. But you scored eight points.
-Come on then, Dawes.
-Come on, let's have this!
So you have USA.
Your time starts now.
Oh, baseball, the final game of baseball, is called the...
-It is, yes.
Oh, imagine this pose.
-Air Jordan? Michael Jordan?
-What's his name?
-I think I've just done my hammy.
The car, they go round.
-Yes, it is!
I'm spelling his name with a pom-pom!
Oh, the tennis, they play tennis there.
Oh, with a basketball, and I do that.
Oh, we call it football, they call it...
-Yes. And, in the capital...
The baseball team in the capital.
-New York Yankees!
Yes! Yes! Oh, a tennis player, she recently...
Oh, no, gymnast! Superstar gymnast!
Little, little girl.
Oh, there's just a bit of...
Ooh, I've got something stuck in my throat, but...
Move on, move on!
Maybe we could cut that last bit out, Sue.
-I got it - bile!
-I didn't know New York was the capital of America.
-It's not that!
-It's not, that's what he said, the capital of America.
-I'm thinking Washington.
-But Charlotte knew what he meant!
-It's not the capital, is it? Sorry.
-No, but I could guess...
And some more bad news - we can't give you NASCAR,
because although you said NASCAR, you used "car".
But you needed four, you scored seven.
You win the game! Well done.
APPLAUSE AND CHEERING
-Well done, you.
It's been a lot of fun, very competitive.
A huge thank you to Andrew and Alex, to Charlotte and Kieron.
And make sure you are following A Question Of Sport on social,
where there are quizzes, some fun games,
and behind-the-scenes exclusives.
But the three of us will be back soon. Until then, goodbye.
