Who are you? is the latest Wordle themed soccer guessing game, where a star from the top five leagues in Europe is hidden behind a blurry screen with only eight guesses available to reveal him
It’s the game that took the world by storm.
People around the world have frustratingly turned their wits against their phones and computers to guess the five-letter word of the day with just six tries and very few clues. It has attracted millions of players, with Wordle becoming so popular that the New York Times raised a staggering seven-figure sum in January to buy the game from its creator, Josh Wardle.
And now it has its own unofficial football offshoot.
Who are you? follows a similar strategy, with users having eight attempts to guess the footballer of the day, with the clues falling in just five areas – nationality, league, club, position and age. Players are only picked from the top five leagues in Europe, but that still leaves a plethora of options to choose from – and fans rack their brains.
But who is the footballer in question for Tuesday 22nd March?
Users are given a blurry image as their only clue right from the start, and this author has embarked on that Barcelona Star Ousmane Dembele – just to be informed, the only relevant factor was his age – 24. Narrowing down the player to his respective nationality or division would give a greater chance of quickly guessing who Arsenal’s England winger Bukayo Saka was the next port call (I know he’s not 24).
Fortunately, the tactic paid off, confirming it was an Englishman First League Star we were looking for and finding the next clue proved fairly easy – this time opting for Crystal Palace’s Tyrick Mitchell showed it was indeed a defender, although it proved a little problematic from then on proved.
Decide not to use a Google Searching and relying on his pathetic knowledge of 24-year-old English Premier League defenders, two wrong guesses followed – each time a player from a different club was selected – before he finally got lucky on the sixth try: Manchester United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
In hindsight it should have been a simpler answer, although Wan-Bissaka’s lack of playing time lately can be a somewhat tolerable excuse. He has made just five appearances since the turn of the year after falling largely out of favor under interim boss Ralf Rangnick.
Diogo Dalot has been the preferred choice in recent months and Wan-Bissaka could find himself at a crossroads in the summer, although the appointment of a new manager at Old Trafford could give the £50million signing a boost in his selection hopes.
However, former Man Utd full-back Paul Parker believes this could be the end of the road for Wan-Bissaka at United. as he told BonusCodeBets earlier this month : “If that’s the case, it’s a pity. But the bonus for him is that he’s been there and made it, so experientially he’ll be a better person after he’s been there as long as he keeps his head up and doesn’t take it as a negative. Because the negative could have been if he turned it down and said he was content to play crystal palace.”
