QUIZ: Can You Name The Player Who Wore The Bizarre Squad Number?

For years, squad numbers have been used to identify and distinguish players on the field of play.

The lower-ranked numbers are traditionally given to goalkeepers and defenders while the higher-ranked numbers, like nine and 10, are often handed to the team's centre forward or main striker.

These have become a solid tradition in the game so when someone comes along and picks an 'unconventional' choice, then things can get a little confusing.
