Bridge Barry SWP in England team Oct 14

Manchester City’s three lions wore their international shirts with pride against Belarus last night but the appearance of Gareth Barry, Wayne Bridge and Shaun Wright-Phillips in the England starting line up was not a new phenomenon.

There have been other occasions when a trio of Blues have been harnessed in an England starting eleven to the benefit of their country.

We want you to tell us the last time City had a hat-trick of starters – and it has to be starters not substitutes – in a senior England game (friendly or competition), the opposition and the scorers.

One fan with the correct solution to our conundrum – drawn at random - will win a signed photo of Messrs Barry, Bridge and Wright-Phillips courtesy of mcfc.co.uk.

Please email your entries to mcfc@mcfc.co.uk before 9am Friday morning indicating three lions in the subject field.
