3) Who is the current captain of the Netherlands national side?

9) Dennis Bergkamp only played for three clubs in his career. They were Ajax, Arsenal, and who else?

C – Internazionale. Bergkamp spent two years in Italy between 1993 and 1995, with a disappointing (by his standards) goal return of 11 in 52 appearances. He later moved to Arsenal where he spent the final eleven years of his playing career. 75% answered correctly.
