Cesare and Paolo Maldini

8-6-97 LYON, TOURNOI DE FRANCE. BRAZIL V ITALY. PAOLO MALDINI.

Paolo Maldini in action for Italy.

Both Maldini’s achieved great things on the pitch for both Italy and AC Milan, and they crossed paths on three occasions throughout Paolo’s playing career – most notably at international level

The Milan legend was given his break in the under-21 side by his dad in 1986, and a decade later they worked with each other once again for the senior side at the 1998 World Cup.

With Paolo captaining Italy, coach Cesare steered the Azzurri to the quarter-finals of the competition, eventually losing to winners France on penalties.
