With possibly the most unpronounceable name in football, Spain defender Cesar Azpilicueta is called Dave by his Chelsea team-mates.

The affectionate nick-name, which the 24-year-old spoke about in an interview with The Independent, has now spread to Google.

The world's largest search engine has unveiled a new latest score feature in which the team line-ups can be accessed.

While the names of every other player are spelt out in full, including those of team-mates including Gerard Pique, Andres Iniesta and Diego Costa, in place of Azpilicueta is 'Cez (Dave)'.

Following Spain's humiliating 5-1 defeat to the Netherlands, Azpilicueta might have preferred his name, whether real or a joke, hadn't appeared on the line up at all.
