As FIFA World Cup thrills, name YOUR Bible fantasy football team


Check the names and positions below and see if you can name a stronger line-up to the published contributor squad on Premier Radio.

Goal keeper: Jesus…because he saves!

Left back: Barnabas because he defended the Gospel.

Centre back: Go for Peter ‘The Rock’ as centre half.

Centre back: David as a defender because he is very strong.

Right back: Adam…’cos he goes right back to the beginning!

Left midfield: Angel Gabriel on the wing.

Central midfield: Solomon in midfield – he has the wisdom to read the situation.

Central midfield: Get Moses in midfield to feed the strikers: he’s great at pass overs.

Right midfield: Elijah has pace, he proved this by outrunning Ahab. Play him on the wings.

Striker: Joshua as a centre forward. He’d fear no opposition!

Striker: Jehu as striker, he will move so fast and furiously, no one will catch him.


1) Andrew for his fabulous assists, especially leading Simon-Peter to Christ!

2) Samson so he can head in corners

3) Goliath as a central defender

Manager: St Paul, whose team talk would be based on Philippians 3 verse 14: “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

They can all play against the Sons of Jacob – full team sorted in one hit – mind you they probably wouldn’t work well together and would send Joseph away as a sub!
