TYRESE CAMPBELL

The striker was born on December 28, 1999 and had the perfect man to teach him the art of scoring from the day he was a toddler.

His father, Kevin, enjoyed an epic career scoring for Arsenal, Everton, Nottingham Forest and West Bromwich Albion before retiring in 2007 after a brief spell with Cardiff City.

After winning the First Division with the Gunners in 1991, the 51-year-old soon added FA Cup and Uefa Cup Winners’ Cup medals to his collection.

Now it’s his guy, 22 years old, who is bringing him so much joy.

After starting his career at Manchester City’s academy, Tyrese joined Stoke in 2018.

He had a loan spell at Shrewsbury as a teenager, but now he’s back and is a regular in O’Neill’s game-day squad.

The star has scored 17 goals in 69 league games for the Potters – including three in all competitions this term.

TOM INCE

The most famous of the trio, the winger has had plenty of top-flight experience during his highly moving career.

After failing to establish himself at Liverpool, one of his ex-fathers was an England international Paul Inceold clubs, he signed for Blackpool.

His form there caught the attention of several clubs but it was Hull City that he joined after his loan spell at Crystal Palace.

A loan at Nottingham Forest was followed by a loan at Derby, eventually leading to a permanent switch, for two years before spending an extended season at Huddersfield.

Tom, 29, joined Stoke in 2018, and although he had another loan spell at Luton, he has made 94 appearances and 12 league goals for them since.

From an early age, he knew he had to wear big boots – especially with his father nicknamed The Guv’nor.

Senior Ince rose to stardom at West Ham in the 1980s before going on to win the Premier League and FA Cup twice at Manchester United.

He played for Inter Milan, Liverpool, Middlesbrough, Wolves and Swindon before becoming player-manager at Macclesfield and saving them from relegation.

Ince, now 54, has also managed MK Dons, Blackburn Rovers and Notts County as well as Blackpool.
