Which Premiership player can speak the language of a team-mate’s country even though that team-mate cannot speak the language himself?
is the language Irish?
Liverpool’s Xabi Alonso spent a went to Irish classes when he spent Summer’s as a teenager in County Meath whilst teammate Steve Finnan although Limerick born, hasn’t a word of Irish as his family emigrated to Birmingham whilst he was a sprog.
Close enough with the wild Xabi Alonso guess. Ben Shermin is warmest though but I can’t see whatever picture Flano has.
hear about hargreaves speaking welsh but thats not meant to be true
Nothing to do with Hargreaves.

And you believed them…?
Only player to have played in a World Cup finals for two different countries?
Is it someone who played for West Germany and Germany like Mathaus or is it two distinct countries?
And it’s the finals tournament I presume, as opposed to the final itself?
Don’t want to get into the politicis of the other half of your query but it’s not Germany.
Some class of a Czecheslovakian from Italia 90? I’m thinking eastern bloc anyway.
Robert Prosinecki ?
That’s the one. 90 and 98.
I liked him a lot by the way. One of those old-school footballers who smoke and drank and bordered on being overweight.
Yeah he was a lovely player. Great touch and not much pace or anything but just sheer quality on the ball. That was a cracking midfield with Boban beside him.
Love this clip of Boban kicking the Yugoslav police:
