O Brother, Where Art Thou?

While we're all accustomed to seeing siblings line up against each other at the club level, I was quite surprised to read that the phenomenon does indeed extend to the international level. Mark Gleeson over at the Reuters Soccer Blog has a great piece up about brothers lining up for different countries.

I don't think I've ever heard of such a thing, but with players and federations playing fast and loose with citizenship rules and regulations, I guess it was only a matter of time.
