MILAN – The second ‘Guess Who’ challenge, the quiz designed to test all those Inter know-it-alls, launched today on our social media profiles (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram). The task was to decipher the emojis and identify the 16 historic Inter players that lay behind them.
Here are the solutions:
