And there are sure to have been plenty of fun tales exchanged, with the trio each enjoying fine playing careers.

And he was cut loose after just three seasons as he failed to adapt to English football.
Forlan did manage to win a Premier League title and FA Cup alongside former captain Keane.

He took charge of Penarol in his homeland a year later, but was sacked after just 11 matches.
