How good is your geography? Can you find Germany, Portugal or Slovakia on a map?

Put your European knowledge to the test with this interactive 10-question quiz put together by insurance quote company, GoCompare.com.

The quiz about Europe was taken by 1,000 people from the United Kingdom and USA and the results showed that one in 10 people from the UK could not recognise Ireland on a map.

It also revealed that the average UK respondent scored 6.5 out of 10 while Americans scored an average of 4.9 out of 10.

Americans know Slovakia better than the UK as identifying Slovakia was the toughest question for UK residents.
