Fabio Capello, Vincenzo Montella and Billy Slater celebrate their birthdays.

FABIO CAPELLO (69): Played as a midfielder and won several trophies during a career which lasted over 15 years. He won the Coppa Italia with Roma in 1969. He was most successful with Juventus, winning three Serie A titles in 1972, 1973 and 1975. Capello made 32 appearances for Italy, scoring eight goals.

In his first five seasons as a manager he won four Serie A titles with Milan – the key achievement being the Champions League title in 1994 where Milan beat Barcelona 4-0. He later spent a year at Real Madrid, clinching the La Liga title at his first attempt. In 2001, he led Roma to their first league title in 18 years.

VINCENZO MONTELLA (40): Montella's nickname during his playing career was "The Little Airplane", in reference to his small stature and trademark goal celebration. He was known as a quick, hard-working striker with an eye for goal.

Montella is remembered for his performances with Roma (1999-2007), winning the Serie A title and the Supercoppa Italiana.

BILLY SLATER (32): An Australian international and Queensland State of Origin representative, he's played his entire NRL career to date at Melbourne, with whom he set the club record for most ever tries.
