- 8th January 1950 - Ruben Ayala - A cracking little forward, he was part of the San Lorenzo team that famously went unbeaten in Argentina for the whole of the 1972 Nacional championship. Ayala appeared in the 1974 Panini World Cup album, but the photo they used was a mistake, they actually put in a picture of Rosario Central's Pedro “Aldo” Poy, instead of Ayala.
- 8th January 1979 - Adrian Mutu - The Romanian attacker had plenty of clubs (13). A few controversies. And bags of talent.
