- Valentina Allegri
Because of the international nature of the game of soccer, it is extremely rare for a player to spend the majority of their career in their home country, but in the case of Massimiliano Allegri, he was one of the exceptions. From 1984 to 2003, Allegri played as a midfielder for several teams in his native country of Italy, and after retiring he decided to become a manager, and has so far been successful while only managing teams located in Italy. He has a daughter named Valentina, who is a very young and fashionable woman, who posts so many pictures online that she can basically be considered an Instagram model. Valentina may be the daughter of a former soccer player, but she is an avid basketball fan, with the Chicago Bulls being her favorite team.
- Dalma Maradona
The FIFA World Cup is soccer’s grandest stage, and like every other sport, this event has been marred with controversial plays, but no play in World Cup history is more infamous than the one known as “The Hand of God” which saw Diego Maradona score the tying goal against England in a quarter-finals match by illegally putting the ball into the net with his hand. Now, Diego will forever be remembered for this goal, even though he was an exceptional player in his own right, and his family will constantly have to be reminded that he cheated, family which includes his daughter Dalma. Thanks to the love Argentina still has for her father, Dalma was able to successfully pursue a career in both singing and acting, a career that started when she was only 9 years old, and which has seen her appear in 20 credited roles in both film and television.
