Shamrock Rovers in action against Tottenham Hotspurs

QUIZ - Can you name the Shamrock Rovers Europa League Squad 2011/2012?
Published: November 13, 2017

As the Republic of Ireland look to seal World Cup qualification and a trip to the World Cup in Russia next summer – there's one team in Ireland who beat them to it by six years.

 

If Martin O'Neill side find themselves pitching up in Kazan for one or more of their group games, he might just give a call to his namesake Michael for a few tips on the Tatarstan city.

 

Shamrock Rovers' groundbreaking 2011 season saw them become the first Irish club to qualify for the group stages of the Europa League – where they faced Rubin Kazan, PAOK and Tottenham.

 

While they ultimately lost all six games, it's an experience that will live long in the memories of Rovers fans and many more besides – but how many of the squad members can you remember?

 

21 players in total were nominated by O'Neill to play in the group stages of the competition and we're giving you seven minutes to try and name them all.
