The Euro 2012 soccer championships are coming to a close, and World Cup 2014 in Brazil doesn't seem that far away. Major tournaments like these are more than just a showcase for great soccer: they're also the way millions of Americans learn what a nil-nil draw is, or what people from Slovenia and Cote d'Ivoire look like. Here are eight shirts worn in either the Euro 2012 or World Cup 2010 tournaments - can you identify the countries whose players wore them?

Answers are here. Please post your guesses, speculations, or arguments below! But know this: the Trivial Eye is presented for public amusement and no prizes are offered other than that familiar feeling of aggravation that so much of your mind is occupied by useless trivia.

1 and 6 were not worn in either the world cup or euro cup. They were worn in the 2012 Africa Cup of nations.

The first 'Trivial Eye' that I got very easily!

The only one I didn't know at first glance was South Africa. But it came after a second or two.
