We could have put any number of great pairs of footballing siblings in this spot.
The Toure brothers at Manchester City made headlines for reasons good (Yaya being nominated to UEFA's Team of the Season) and not-so-good (Kolo gets fined for a failed drug test). Rafinha Alcântara is working his way up the ranks at Barcelona alongside big brother Thiago. Hamit Altintop's identical twin brother Halil spent some time in the Champions League after joining Trabzonspor. And there's always the great-but-at-least-one-is-retired options: the Laudrups, the Nevilles, the Cannavaros.
And then there are the Da Silva twins, signed by Sir Alex Ferguson as buzzy teenagers, both full-backs, with the potential, shown in flashes every so often when they're given playing time, to become football's next great sibling duo.
Sadly, both are on the sidelines with injuries on United's ever-increasing list of the wounded, so this holiday season, we wish them a speedy recovery.
