    Thought this would be interesting trivia but excuse me if it's in the wrong place...

    Can we name all the Celtic players that have scored at a World Cup?

    I'll start with three recent and easy ones...

    Larsson for Sweden.
    Collins for Scotland.
    Keane for Ireland.

    Bonus-

    Boyd for Brazil!

    Camara and Reiper are good shouts! Couldn't find when Weighorst scored, I remember him getting sent off after 5 minutes at the WC!
