When watching a fast-pace game of football, it can sometimes be hard to keep track of the ball between passes.

This is even truer with these 'Spot the Ball' puzzles we have made. In five vintage football photos, we have digitally removed the football. Your goal is to guess where it would be.

To see the answers, check the links under the circular i button on each image and you'll find the original photographs.
