In what was a rare occasion in the world of football, four brothers played in a professional match on Monday night in the Kuwait Premier League.

Fahad and Khaled Al Rashidi lined up for Al Salmiya against their brothers Walid and Hamed, who play for Al Tadhamon.

Khaled and Walid are both goalkeepers, while Fahad and Hamed are opposing strikers.

The match ended in a 2-2 draw with Fahad actually scoring a goal in his 18-year-old brother Walid’s net.

Football is full of famous sibling acts, be it the Charltons, the Nevilles, the Ayews, the Toures, the De Boers…  Kuwait’s Al Rashidi foursome may not be in the same league but they’ve sure made a name for themselves on Monday night.
