PUBLISHED: 12:20 16 April 2017 | UPDATED: 12:20 16 April 2017

Today is ‘Sir Bobby Robson Day’ as Ipswich Town host Newcastle United in the Championship, with a number of events set to be held at Portman Road.

The Blues and the Magpies are synonymous with Sir Bobby, who managed both clubs with distinction and led the Blues to the 1978 FA Cup and 1981 UEFA Cup.

Sir Bobby also led England to the World Cup semi-finals at Italia ‘90 and moved on to manage in Holland, Portugal and Spain, before returning to his homeland with the Magpies.

As part of today’s celebrations, we have devised a quiz, devoted to Sir Bobby, to test the most ardent football fan.

See how many questions you can get right and enjoy the game if you are going.

Good luck!
