As 2021 draws to an end, the time for reflection is upon us, and what a year it has been for ‘The Beautiful Game’.

It was 12 months that almost seemed addicted to headline making.

The Super League debacle ended with a whimper, resignations and more than a few tails tucked between legs. Instead of ‘Coming Home’, ‘it’ came to Rome. Lionel Messi finally won a trophy with Argentina, left Barcelona, joined PSG and scooped another Ballon d’Or. Meanwhile Cristiano Ronaldo became the all-time top international goalscorer in men’s football.

There were plenty more twists, turns, spills and thrills, and in our quiz below we look back at most of them. So, can you decipher the silhouettes and work out the missing men from these iconic 2021 moments?
