This Week's Football Birthdays: 14th-20th March

This Week's Football Birthdays: March 14th - March 20th

A number of big football stars celebrate their birthday this week. But who's celebrating? And how old will they be?

This post shows you which top footballers have their birthday in the next 7 days. 


Paul Pogba (29)

After some strong performances for France at Euro 2020 with France, Paul Pogba has had another frustrating year at Man United so far. 

However, the global superstar has the chance to make his next birthday a memorable one for him and the fans.

After all, he turns 29 on Tuesday March 15th. Which happens to be the day that United face Atletico in the second leg of their Champions League tie. 

This is a must-win for United if they want to fight for any silverware this season. And if the ‘France’ version of Paul Pogba turns up, it would definitely help the Red Devil’s cause.

For good luck, we’ve shown him here on the special Les Bleus design we made for Euro 2020. Sorry, Atletico fans!

Diego Carlos (29)

Sevilla’s centre back is attracting big interest from across Europe. With Newcastle reportedly in the hunt at a price of £60m.

Before he goes anywhere, Sevilla will be hoping he helps them to a 7th Europa League victory. We've shown him here on an S22 Europa Cup card for good measure.

Dominic Calvert Lewin (25)

Dominic Calvert Lewin was truly brilliant last season. So brilliant that he won a place in England’s Euro 2020 squad. Unfortunately he’s suffered an injury hit 2021/22 season so far - and how Everton have missed him!

Dominic turns 25 on March 16th and will be desperate to put a good run of games together before the end of the season. If he doesn’t, Everton’s fight against relegation will be much, much harder than it already is. 

He’s shown here on an S22 Heroes Card.

Edin Dzeko (36)

Edin Dzeko is one of his generation's greatest strikers. After all, he's one of the few players to score 50 or more goals in the Germany, England, and Italy.

The Bosnia captain turns 36 on Thursday and yet he’s still banging them in for Inter Milan.

Dzeko is also the answer to a classic Premier League trivia question. As he was the OTHER injury time scorer (along with Aguerooooooo) in Man City's famous title win in 2011/2012.

Here he is on an S22 Throwback Card inspired by that season.

Hakim Ziyech (29)

There are few players with a purer technique than Hakim Ziyech. The Chelsea man has sometimes struggled for consistency at Stamford Bridge. But his class is there for everybody to see. 

The former Ajax man turns 29 on March 19th and will be hoping to win another Champions League medal this spring. With that in mind, we’ve shown him here on a Champions League Special card.
