I can narrow it to 2 based on that criteria.

Maybe that's even worse. Two players have their reputation besmirched. One of them has been questioned but not charged. The other has nothing to do with it but has his good name dragged into the speculation.

What purpose does it serve for the police to release this information?

Premier League player. Aged 29. Lives in Barnet (so probably plays for a North London club). Was due to play in Qatar.

You can narrow it down to one player. I'm not going to name him and I don't think the police should be releasing such details that allow him to be identified when he hasn't been charged with an offence.

An article I read said he’s internationally renowned & in the top few players at his club.

I’ve narrowed it down to about 8 players it could be, which goes down to 4 depending on interpretation of criteria and taking out recently transferred/out of contract players. End result gives me 2 possibilities from the list taking into account all of the criteria and likelihood of living in Barnet, and they play at the same club.

Worst thing about releasing just enough information is that everyone that fits the criteria starts getting talked about as a possible.

Doesn't seem to be in the public interest to release any detail until the investigation warrants it

Didn’t take too long for people to work out that allegylfi was the footballer stood down on another case that is still ongoing, but the speculation didn’t help anyone and it’s a dangerous game they play

Does he live in Barnet? Did they confirm that or are you assuming that? Does he play for a North London club or are you assuming that?

It's not hard to find a list of 29 year old players playing in the Premier League.

Born in 1992 (players likely playing at Qatar 22 in bold)

Mohamed El Neny
Granit Xhaka
Jed Stear
Emilio Martinez
Danny Ings
James Tarkowski
Wout Weghorst (has just moved to a Turkish club - only played 14 times for Netherlands))
Jeffrey Schlupp - hasn't played much for Ghana though recently
Wilfried Zaha
Jannik Vestergaard
Allison

Alex Telles
Jesse Lingard
Son Heung Min
Lucas Moura

Ryan Frederick
Vladimir Coufal
Phillipe Coutinho ***(Police report said alleged rape took place in June - Phillipe Coutinho turned 30 on June 12)

Born in 1993 (players likely playing at Qatar 22 in bold)

Thomas Partey
Tyrone Mings

Ethan Pinnock
Antonio Rudiger (has left Chelsea, unaware if still residing in London)
Hakim Ziyech
Romelu Lukaku - loaned to Inter Milan recently)
Jack Butland
Michael Keane
Andoulaye Doucoure
Danny Ward
Lorius Karius (has left Liverpool)
Harry Maguire
Raphael Varane
Paul Pogba (has left Utd and joined Juve)
Fred

Ben Gibson
Christoph Zimmermann
Pierre Lees-Melou
Ben Davies
Alphones Areola (new signing)
Manuel Lanzini

Jose Sa
Conor Coady



Must be one of the players highlighted in bold. I imagine there's plenty that could be eliminated from simply not being in the country but as the alleged crime took place in June (the police did not specify a date) it's hard to tell unless the player left England at the end of May.

Fred and Varane only arrived in the UK a few days ago so it's not them.

Forgot the Watford list at 28-29 yrs old.

Troost-Ekong, Masina, Hassane Kamara and Ken Sema.

Are Nigeria, Morroco, Ivory Coast and Sweden at the WC? Not even sure if WTE or Sema are in the national sides.

To be honest I don't get the obsession with speculating. Feels quite tasteless even if you do happen to guess it right, does that make people feel satisfied they worked it out?

Apparently the player has 3 women who have made complaints.

Career over.

The latest Guardian article also states he was arrested at his North London home. So likely a player who plays at a club in the greater London area.

Narrows the list I posted down quite significantly.
