Liverpool’s Glen Johnson struggles to name North American sports teams

Liverpool FC departed for their North American pre-season tour today, but not before challenging Glen Johnson to name as many US and Canadian sports teams as he could in 60 seconds. The Liverpool official site says the right back is a "big fan of American sports", but his failure to name some of the more famous franchises suggests otherwise.

To be fair, Johnson reels off more team names than the average Brit probably could when put on the spot, and he manages to save potential embarrassment by successfully naming the Boston baseball outfit that is also owned by his employer.

Meanwhile, Martin Kelly was also quizzed in a segment called "Make yourself sound really boring in a game that lets us learn very little about your personality or knowledge of North America":
