the Monday quiz

April 26, 2010

This week’s quiz features a bunch of footballers, but probably not the ones you’re used to reading about on this blog…

This week, you have to guess who the brothers of these footballers are.  The answers are all current Real Madrid players of course, and given the strong family resemblance in most of the cases, it shouldn’t be too hard!

Answers after the jump!

1.  Alfonso Adán, little brother of Antonio Adán.  Alfonso is currently the goalkeeper for Real Madrid’s Infantil A team – guess goalkeeping skills run in the family!

2.  Miguel Albiol, older brother of Raúl Albiol.  He’s a midfielder playing at Murcia, having played at Valencia, Recre and Rayo Vallecano previously.

3.  Dariusz Dudek, younger brother of Jerzy Dudek.  He’s currently on the squad of Odra Wodzislaw in Poland, where he’s a defender – guess goalkeeping skills don’t run in this family.

4.  Federico Higuaín, older brother of Pipita and also a striker.  He plays in the Argentine league for Godoy Cruz, on loan from Independiente.  There’s a strong resemblance, no?

5.  Mikel Alonso, older brother of Xabi Alonso and the only one we’ve actually seen this season in the first division of La Liga, since he plays for Tenerife.  He’s a midfielder just like Xabi, and played previously at Real Sociedad and Numancia, with a stint in England with Bolton.

6.  No, that’s not Kaká, but his lookalike younger brother Digão (Rodrigo) Izecson dos Santos Leite, the one responsible for giving Kaká the Kaká nickname.  Digão and his brother used to be teammates at Milan, before he was loaned out to Rimini, Standard Liège, Lecce and Crotone, where he is now.  Digão is a centerback.

7.  Malte Metzelder, younger brother of Christoph Metzelder.  He’s a centerback whose current team is FC Ingolstadt, having played for Preuβen Münster, Borussia Dortmund (where he was teammates with his brother) and VfR Aalen previously.

How’d you do?  I for one didn’t know that there were so many footballing brothers!
