In case you didn't know, here at The Sportsman we are very closely linked to the FA Cup. On July 20, 1871 at the offices of The Sportsman newspaper in London The FA Cup was created and the greatest knockout competition the game has ever seen which would pit the great and good of the game with the sport’s more humble heroes was born.

If you want to read exactly how the FA Cup was created in our offices, you can do so here - but this weekend, we have reached the semi-final stage as Manchester City, Chelsea, Leicester and Southampton all dream of glory. Wembley awaits and to celebrate this big weekend in the sporting calendar, we have put together ten difficult quiz questions, all about the history of the FA Cup?

Reckon you know your winners and losers? Do you know the great achievements of Keith Houchen and Dave Beasant? Obviously, we wouldn't make it that easy, so here are ten difficult questions down below for you to get your teeth stuck into on FA Cup semi-final weekend. 

Give it your best shot, and see how far you can go in the competition. Make sure to avoid that embarrassing third round exit to a non-league side...
