Earlier today we asked the club's Twitter and Facebook followers to answer our Three Lions'-themed teaser.

With England in action during this current international break, bcfc.com took a topical twist and quizzed Bluenoses on the 18 men who have represented England at senior level whilst playing for Birmingham City.

Now after plenty of conflab, we can set your minds at ease with the full run down of those former stars who proudly donned the Three Lions during their time at St. Andrew's.

So here goes...

 - Goalkeeper Harry Hibbs - 25 caps between 1929 and 1936.
