Nope, you're correct. He was first choice in 2005 and came into the 2007 starting line-up when Alvaro Arbeloa was injured.

Paolo Maldini, Mohamed Salah, Gaizka Mendieta. What Champions League stat links these three? (The order matters)

What links Michael Ballack, Thierry Henry, Mark van Bommel, Arjen Robben and Dejan Lovren?

Is it that they scored in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd minutes respectively in CL finals?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Unused subs in the World Cup final? I'm sure Robben would have started though...

EDIT - And Lovren.

I'll accept that. They've all lost both finals in the same year.

His Wikipedia page doesn't have him down as a runner-up but all the others do.

I looked originally because I assumed they had all played in both matches in the same year.

I would imagine that there are more players than those mentioned that have lost both matches.

I thought that but Maldini, Del Piero and Buffon have all lost 3 and Evra has lost 4.
