Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Januzaj & Tevez celebrate birthdays

Published Add your comment

Want you son or daughter to become football's next superstar? Then try and plan their birth for February 5.

That's because a host of big-name footballers are celebrating their birthdays today.

Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj turns 19, Barcelona's Neymar is now 22, Argentina international Carlos Tevez turns 30, while Cristiano Ronaldo is celebrating his 29th birthday.

That's an impressive quartet of superstars all born on the same date.

Other footballing heroes also celebrating their birthdays today include Romania legend Gheorghe Hagi and retired Dutch full-back Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

So, is there something in this - or is it simply a coincidence?

There are plenty of days on which two great players share the same birthday - such as Andres Iniesta and Thibaut Courtois (May 11), Lionel Messi and David Alaba (June 24), and Oscar and Luka Modric (September 9).

But six on the same day? Is that a bit spooky?
