Many footballers have been caught lying about their age in the past, but perhaps none are more famous than these eight players.
Click through the gallery above to see eight footballers who became famous for allegedly lying about their age, according to various reports.
There have been many instances of age fraudulence in the beautiful game, such as Gourav Mukhi in India and Carlos Alberto in Brazil.
In Mukhi's case, he became the youngest-ever goalscorer in the Indian Super League at just 16 years old, but he was, in fact, actually 28 years old. It is undoubtedly one of football's most famous instances of age-cheating, but what about Carlos Alberto?
The former prodigy was believed to be in his teens when he lifted the 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship with his country, but was later found to be lying about his age by five years. As punishment, he was handed a one-year ban from the sport.
One of the more recent cases of age-cheating occurred earlier this year when former Senegal international Guirane N'Daw candidly admitted to falsifying his age in order to become a professional player.
What was perhaps more controversial that his confession, however, was N'Daw claiming that "99% of players have reduced their age" in Senegal. Let's hope that is not the case.
In South Africa, former Ajax Cape Town player Sibusiso Mzizi was alleged to have misled authorities into believing he was five years younger than he actually was – click through the gallery above to see some more footballers who lied about their age!
