    Its a Family Affair Argentinas coach Diego Maradona is the father-in-law of Sergio Aguero.

    There are two cases where father and son also share the coach and player relationship: Slovakias coach Vladimir Weiss and his son Vladimir and the US coach Bob Bradley with midfielder Michael.

    The Boateng brothers will play for different teams. They have the same father and both have two nationalities: Jerome chose to play for Germany, Kevin Prince for Ghana.

    Other brothers: Andre and Ibrahim Ayew (Ghana) both sons of former player Abedi Pel, Edgar and Diego Barreto (Paraguay), Jhony and Wilson Palacios (Honduras), Kolo and Yaya Tour (Cte dIvoire)

    There are also two pairs of cousins: Cameroons Rigobert and Alex Song and the Slovenian goalkeeper duo Samir and Jasmin Handanovic.

    Former winners out in force The only coach able to win two consecutive tournaments was Italian Vittorio Pozzo in 1934 and 1938. In 1938, he called only 4 players who were present in Italy four years before.

    Never change a winning team! has been the motto of other World Cup winning coaches. In 1982 Cesar Menotti relied on 11 players from Argentinas 1978 winners. In 1986 Italys Enzo Bearzot picked 9 players from the team from four years before. Uruguays Juan Lopez used 8 players from 1950 in 1954.

    Italys current coach Marcello Lippi recalled 9 of his Germany 2006 heroes for the competition in South Africa: Buffon, Camoranesi, Cannavaro, De Rossi, Gattuso, Gilardino, Iaquinta, Pirlo, and Zambrotta.

    There are also four Brazilian players in the 2010 squad who won the title in 2002: Gilberto Silva, Kaka, Kleberson, Lucio. Thierry Henry is the only French player present who triumphed in 1998.

    Argentinas current Diego Maradona won the FIFA World Cup in 1986, and Brazils coach Dunga in 1994 (under coach Carlos Alberto Parreira who is now on the Bafana Bafana bench).
