Why February 5 is such a significant date
February 5, as it turns out, is a very special day on the modern football calendar. A large number of fans would instantly reply “yes, because it’s Cristiano Ronaldo’s birthday!”. And they’d be on the right tracks. But there’s more to this particular date than just Ballon d’Or winner CR7. In fact, no fewer than 14 known players across Europe are a year older today.
Over 20 professional footballers at a high level of the game share February 5 as a birthday, in total, so join us in wishing many happy returns to all of them! Here, in case you were wondering, are the 14 many fans stand a strong chance of at least having heard of – and Ronaldo finds himself in some star-studded birthday company. It's surely just a coincidence. Or is it?
