Jeffers and Shearer both…

Jeffers and Shearer both…

My love for facts, stats and trivia lead me to try something different here on Vital Blackburn. I gave you a Trivia question to try and answer.

The question asked:
"Other than both being current/former Blackburn Rovers strikers what do Francis Jeffers and Alan Shearer have in common?"

They are of course joint record holders with 13 goals scored at under-21 level for England (not pig ugly with odd shaped heads as BomBom said, how dare he LOL!)

Shearer obtained his 13 goals in only 11 matches whereas Jeffers took 16.

As a side note both also scored on their Senior England International bows! Shearer scored against France whilst with Southampton in 1992, Jeffers in his one and only England appearance against Australia in 2002 whilst with Arsenal.

Congratulations to Vital member whitey_82003 who was the first to correctly get this.
