Click through the gallery above to see famous brothers who both represented their countries.

The Ayew brothers, Andre and Jordan, are both sons of three-time CAF African Player of the Year Abedi Pele, and have represented their country 123 times between them. However, following Ghana's poor recent performances, both have been dropped from Kwesi Appiah's latest Black Stars squad.
