The former goalkeeper of Nigeria, Peter Rufai, was the son of a tribal king.
In other sports, Prince Albert II of Monaco competed in the bobsleigh at five consecutive Winter Olympics. Zara Phillips (Great Britain) and Iñaki Urdangarin (Spain) were even Olympic medalists.

One agency report of Iran 3-1 Burma (1968 Asian Cup) mentioned that the first goal was scored by Kalani after 9 seconds.  Although other sources give the goal in the 2nd minute...

"Longest unbeaten run"
Scotland  7.4.1879-16.3.1888   22 games

Brazil (1993-1996) and Spain (2007-2009), 35 games

How about a variant of this : "Most games unbeaten before first (ever) defeat?"

Any contenders?  I fancy Mauritius, although I fear that some as yet unverified matches in the 1930s may scupper it.

Quickest: Sophus Nielsen 22.10.1908    Denmark   4 minutes
How about Nakayama vs Brunei in 2000... goals at 1' 2' & 4'.
05/07/2003 - South Pacific Games
Fiji 12-0 Kiribati Esala Masi (47', 48', 51')
Another resounding hat-trick: Annuario del Calcio Mondiale 1999/00, pages 766 and 767, states that over England 7-0 Northern Ireland, the English forward Willie Hall scored 3 goals in 3 minutes and 30 seconds.

"El Maestro" Tabárez has become the most-capped coach with a single national team: 168 appearances with Uruguay. He has overtaken the 167 appearances of Sepp Herberger (Germany/West Germany).

I wonder who is the guy (maybe the physio or the bus driver) who has the most "caps" for being in some capacity in the national team set up.
