Mbemba's age old debate

Just how old is DR Congo defender Chancel Mbemba?

The Anderlecht defender is only 20 according to his official club records, but if you look through the record books there are apparently four different birthdates for him.

His former Congolese club Congolese club ES La Grace have him down as 8 August 1988.

Anderlecht have him registered as 8 August 1994.

In an African Cup of Nations qualifier in June 2011 he was registered as 30 November 1991.

Just to muddy the waters further Mbemba himself thinks he was born in 1990.

Perhaps only mum knows.
