Siblings are among the celebrities anticipated to appear at the Mundial, even though some will represent different countries.

The dream of any aspiring football player is to have the opportunity to compete in the FIFA World Cup. 

However, nothing inspires more than realizing a dream alongside a sibling. The eight brothers competing in the 2022 FIFA World Cup are listed below.

Eden Hazard and Thorgan Hazard

At the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Real Madrid star Eden Hazard and his younger brother Thorgan Hazard will represent Belgium.

Thorgon is a midfielder for Borussia Dortmund. He previously had brief stints with RC Lens and Borussia Monchengladbach.

The pair will try to assist Belgium, one of the top teams in the world, as they attempt to win the coveted FIFA World Cup trophy for the first time.

Lucas Hernandez and Theo Hernandez

Didier Deschamps, France’s head coach, chose to include Theo and Lucas Hernandez in the team’s 26-person roster.

While his younger brother is a left-back, Lucas can play as left-back and centre-back.

Theo represents AC Milan, and Lucas has a stellar run with Bayern Munich.

Inaki Williams and Nico Williams

The duo play for Athletic Bilbao, and they will, however, represent different nations in Qatar.

Williams plays for the Ghanaian national side, while Nico represents Spain.

Luis Enrique included Nico, a winger, in Spain’s squad, while Inaki is expected to be named to Ghana’s 26-man squad on Monday, November 14 due to his impressive performances.

Two months ago, Inaki and Nico entered history books by becoming the first siblings to score goals in the same match since 2005. Each of them netted a goal in Athletic Bilbao’s 3-2 win over Rayo Vallecano.

The last pair of brothers to achieve that feat were Gaby and Diego Milito in a match against Barcelona.

Jordan Ayew and Andre Ayew  

The duo will play for Ghana in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Jordan plays as a forward, while Andre is a winger.

Andrew Ayew plays as a winger for Qatar Stars League club Al Sadd and captains the Ghana national team.

Jordan plays for Premier League club Crystal Palace.
