A tale of two (or three?) number 6s
Just in case you only ever visit this site and never venture to our sister operation, the Squad Numbers Blog, here’s a recap of recent activity there.
The newest post looks at an instance of Edgar Davids and Ronald de Boer both wearing number 6 shirts in the same game for the Netherlands against the Republic of Ireland in 1995.
Prior to that, we looked at Roy Hodgson’s comments on Dele Alli, where he described his potential positions by numbers, despite the fact that England players rarely wear the corresponding shirts.
