1:C - Bulka said: “Di María hates Manchester United. He doesn’t have one good memory from the club.

How they – on the power of whiskey and beer – overpowered Chelsea doesn’t say much for Chelsea’s drinking habits either, I imagine. The Bayern guys were certainly sipping whiskey and having a good old time – and then they went and shellacked Chelsea.” , 4:D - Both events will take place in Chandigarh six months before the rest of the Games., 5:D - Wilder said: “He didn’t hurt me at all, but the simple fact is my uniform was way too heavy for me. I didn’t have no legs from the beginning of the fight. In the third round, my legs were just shot all the way through. But I’m a warrior and people know that I’m a warrior.”, 6:C - Liverpool won the cup four times in a row in the 1980s under Bob Paisley and then Joe Fagan. , 7:D - Olympiakos have drawn Wolves, another English team, in the next round., 8:B - England won the Six Nations that year – even though Ireland beat them on the last day of the tournament (in October)., 9:B - Kasper has saved more penalties, but Peter won more Premier League titles (five to Kasper’s one)., 10:D - Burns, who injured himself in a kickabout before he should have been playing cricket for England, said: “While I am still a professional cricketer I probably won’t play football again.”, 11:C - Neither team has lost a competitive game since 7 December.
