Career We Go and PUNDIT are teaming up to give you the greatest football trivia quiz out there. The player for August 16 is the cult hero goalkeeper Shaka Hislop. Read about him right here.

Shaka Hislop started his career with Reading where he became a fan favourite and won player of the year twice. He was actually spotted by a Reading scout while playing an indoor friendly match for his NCAA College Howard University in the US.

However, it was with Newcastle, West Ham, and Portsmouth he became a house hold name in English football. 

Hislop was named the inaugural winner of the PFA Special Merit Award for his services to football in April 2005. He has also been a strong voice for football's 'Show Racism the Red Card' Campaign. 

Being eligible for both the English national team and Trinidad and Tobago, he earned an U-21 cap for England but played 26 games for Trinidad and Tobago from 1999 to 2006.
