Edouard Mendy (30)
Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy turns 30 on March 1st - and what a year he’s had.
Not only did the Stamford Bridge number one lift the Champions League and World Club Cup for his club. He also won the African Cup of Nations with Senegal. In a penalty shootout, no less!
Mendy is definitely one of the world’s top goalkeepers right now. So we’ve shown him here on a CardsPlug S22 Gold Inform Card.
Antonio Rudiger (29)
Next up we have Mendy’s Chelsea teammate Antonio Rudiger.
The German defender is 29 on March 3rd and certainly has an interesting decision to make on his future. Will he get the big contract he wants at Chelsea? Or will he head to Madrid or Paris instead?
For now, he’s still a firm fan favourite at Stamford Bridge. So we’ve shown him here on a CardsPlug London Blue card.
Harry Maguire (29)
Speaking of centre-backs, Manchester United captain Harry Maguire turns 29 on March 5th.
It’s fair to say United have had some defensive troubles this season. Which makes it easy to forget Harry’s rock-solid performances at Euro 2020 a few months ago.
If all goes well, Harry can look forward to leading England’s back line at the World Cup in December. So for some feel good vibes, here he is on our special Three Lions card from last summer.
Staying with Man United - and 29th birthdays - Fred also celebrates his birthday on March 5th.
After a tough start to life at United, the Brazilian has been one of the few players to take a step forward under the new boss Ralf Ragnick.
Here’s hoping there’s even more to come from the £56 million man. We’ve shown him here on a CardsPlug S22 Heroes Card.
Timo Werner (26)
Chelsea’s lightning fast Timo Werner turns 26 on March 6th.
Yes, he might have missed a few chances in his time at Stamford Bridge. But Werner’s pace and movement makes him a nightmare for any defence.
Can he help Chelsea to another European triumph this season? Here he is on the CardsPlug S22 Champions League Special design.
