Manchester United's new hero Rasmus Hojlund could write a small part of Champions League history on Tuesday as he squares off with boyhood side FC Copenhagen.
The Danish champions boast Oscar and Emil Hojlund in their ranks – Hojlund's twin brothers. And if all three are on the pitch at once, it would be the first time three brothers have shared the pitch in the Champions League.
Hojlund, 20, is two years older than his brothers, who have been turning heads in his homeland. However, they are yet to nail down a starting spot at the Danish giants.

Christian Mouroux, who is the sporting director at Horsholm Usserod Idraetsklub (HUI), their first club, told the Manchester Evening News: "A lot of people who have met all three think the two younger brothers are at least as talented as Rasmus.
"All of them have been very well advanced compared to the average, but the two younger brothers were, compared to Rasmus at the same age, in front of him.

"In my opinion, if you’re talking about pure talent, I would go to the length of maybe saying the two little brothers have a slight competitive advantage.

Erik ten Hag's side have to win on Tuesday evening, having lost their opening two games in the Champions League.
