Hi Susi,


In anticipation for this summer’s tournament, we wanted to share a sneak peek of an exciting project we’ve been working on. To get into the spirit, we challenged 8 international football (AKA soccer!) legends to question everything they know about team rivalry and national identity.

How?

They each took a MyHeritage DNA test and were shocked to discover how their origins break down. We revealed to the players their ethnicity results, information about their DNA Matches, as well as family history research with historical records and photos of their ancestors. England's legendary John Barnes? Should have played for Scotland! German captain Lothar Matthäus? 24.3% English!

We were delighted to have the opportunity to bring together these eight legendary footballers to discuss their careers and rivalries, and to delve into their family histories. The players now anticipate cheering on some new national teams — based on newly discovered heritage — during this summer’s tournament. To learn more about the players’ family histories, ethnicity results, and to watch them discuss their discoveries, visit Football DNA.

Please share this exciting video of the 8 football legends discovering their roots with your audience!

Enjoy,

Daniel Horowitz
