Woman wins on Pointless thanks to Celtic legend Henrik Larsson


Pointless is one of those generic TV quiz shows that pop up on the English telesphere every few years.

There was Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, The Weakest Link, and now Pointless seems to have a reasonable hold on the TV game show market.

Not the most sport-related show, today’s show did feature a pretty brilliant football question.

Henrik Larsson is the answer

Asked to name any goalscorer from Euro 2000, a woman who admitted to knowing basically nothing about football managed to guess the right answer, by blurting out ‘Henrik Larsson.’

We later learn that she guessed Larsson thanks to her Celtic-supporting boyfriend.
