We recently brought you a clip from the Last Week Tonight show where host John Oliver got stuck into FIFA and its seemingly corrupts ways.

Well this time it’s John Oliver who is being put to the test.

GQ Magazine have given the English comedian a list of ridiculous footballer’s names and he has to decide whether or not he thinks they are real or fake.

The HBO host, and die-hard football fan, prides himself on his knowledge of the game.

So you can imagine his disbelief when he’s faced with names including Ralph Minge and Dick Tickler.

The outcome? Hilarious.

It’s fair to say Oliver struggled with a few of the names provided by GQ.

But can you think of any other bizarre names on planet football?
