Did it happen in a country beginning M to Z inclusive?


Yes, beginning M to Z in English but A to L in their native tongue.

I have no reason to believe it didn't.

The only connection between the match and the e/o is that the e/o happened close in time. In principle it could have happened at any time.

I'm messing up the four corners of the world or at least two of them - it happened EAST of Albacete.

Sorry about this!

Not a Barcelona v Real Madrid fixture.

To throw in a clue, either Barcelona or Real Madrid were involved in the e/o though.

Think you have chosen a tough one here so will shoot at.....

G) Barcelona player Quini being kidnapped after scoring twice in Barcelona's 6-0 win v Hercules in 1981 eventually being released 25 days later.

That's it! Well done!

It's indeed the kidnapping of Quini. As I can make out the story, he was kidnapped by two persons with a huge debt. They decided to kidnap the most prolific striker of the Spanish 1st Division to get a ransom. As one of the kidnappers was in Switzerland to collect the ransom he was arrested by the police and gave up his partner. Subsequently Quini was rescued by the police in Zaragoza and the second kidnapper arrested.

Over to you Chris.

Good one that and hadn't heard of it. Bit lucky as well as I thought you might have chosen Something Allan Simonsen related during his spell at Barcelona which led me to his striking partner Quini.
