In our regular Sunday feature FIFA.com presents some of the biggest names from Planet Football who will be celebrating their birthdays over the coming week.
17. Sergio Goycochea (47) took part in the 1990 FIFA World Cup™ Final with Argentina, losing to eventual champions Germany. The goalkeeper impressed throughout the tournament with some world-class saves and earned a reputation as a formidable penalty stopper.
18. Legendary French coach Guy Roux (72) worked at Auxerre for 44 years between 1961 and 2005, enjoying considerable success along the way. His only post at another club was with RC Lens in 2007, though the relationship lasted just a few months and proved to be his final job as a coach.
19. Sam Allardyce (56) coaches Premier League side Blackburn Rovers. The former defender took over at Ewood Park two years ago having previously been in charge at Newcastle United and Bolton Wanderers.
20. Claudio Ranieri (59) appeared for Catania and Palermo during his time as a player. However, the Italian really made his name as a coach with Valencia and Atletico Madrid in Spain and Chelsea in England. He is currently at the helm of Italian giants Roma.
21. Nemanja Vidic (29) joined Manchester United in 2006 from Spartak Moscow. The Serbian was part of his country's squad at South Africa 2010, where he was unable to help his team progress beyond the group stage.
22. Arsene Wenger (61) is one of the most recognisable coaches in the Premier League. The Frenchman has been in charge of Arsenal since 1996, and has celebrated three league titles and four FA Cups during that time.
23. Pele (70) reaches yet another major milestone on Saturday. The Brazilian took part in four FIFA World Cups and played for homeland club Santos for a total of 18 years. O Rei had two-year spell in the USA with New York Cosmos before ending his career stateside.
