DID YOU KNOW ?

Diego Forlán was born into a family of footballers. His father Pablo played for the Uruguay national football team during the 1966 FIFA World Cup held in England and the 1974 FIFA World Cup held in West Germany and his grandfather (through his mother), Juan Carlos Corazo, played for CA Independiente in Argentina.

Diego was a promising tennis player in his youth, but when his sister Alejandra was involved in a car accident which killed her boyfriend and left her in intensive care for five months, he decided to follow the family tradition and concentrate on football.

In 2009, Forlán appeared in a music video for Coti starring alongside Maxi Rodríguez.
