     Re: [buncranaboy] Twenty Questions #596 or Reply Privately

OK - recap time

We're looking for a living Belgian footballer born before Jan 1st 1973 but not over the age of 59, nor currently in his fifties who didn't play professionally in the 1980's as far as I can determine.

His surname begins with with M or N but its not Harold Meyssen but the surname does have a double letter in it; plus he's not called van Hoouuvvengaardooffendonckken

He's mainly remembered for one match/incident in particular and the incident would not embarrass him - whether or not he's proud of it would be a moot point but probably yes and it did happen in a specific game

He didn't win a championship with Anderlecht and, despite what wiki might tell you, he didn't win a senior cap for Belgium - I've double checked all the match line-ups and he didn't play. Neither did he play for an English club.

As in some previous quizzes, I will need the reason he's known as well as just his name in case that's just a random lucky stab. I know, as if...........Wink

BACK OF THE NET!!!!!!!!!!

Shot, Chris. Wiki claims he played for Belgium but I checked all the games and found him as an unused sub on seven occasions without ever getting the nod to come on.
I don't know if what he did was subsequently outlawed but I'm not aware of it happening since.
