Born in 1968 in Amsterdam, Gullit made his debut with the Dutch national team at the young age of only 18, playing as a substitute during a game against Switzerland.

Gullit quickly emerged as an agile and versatile player on the Dutch side and played an integral role during the team's play at Euro 88.

After losing the opening game, Holland quickly rebounded and emerged as a strong contender during the tournament.

After defeating West Germany in the semi-final, Holland faced the Soviet Union in the final and Gullit helped take the team to a 2-0 win of the championships.

Two years later, Gullit was part of the national team's squad that competed at the 1990 FIFA World Cup.

Gullit was named European Footballer of the year in 1987 and World Soccer Player of the Year in 1987 and 1989.

In addition to being one of the most talented football players, Gullit has also proven himself as a talented manager over his career.

He has coached teams ranging from Chelsea FC to most recently the Los Angeles Galaxy.

As Holland prepare to take on Uruguay on Tuesday night, here's your chance to quiz Ruud Gullit on the team's chances.

Leonardo DiCaprio is your Connector of the Day.

Born in 1974 in Los Angeles, California, DiCaprio had what would be described as a 'normal' upbringing and didn't get his start in show business until he was 16.

DiCaprio had roles in a number of commercials and got his big break in television, starring in a short-lived show based on the movie "Parenthood."

The American's first film role was in the low-budget horror film "Critters 3" and in 1991, DiCaprio had a recurring role on the popular American sitcom "Growing Pains."

In 1993, DiCaprio played the role of a mentally handicapped child in the movie "What's eating Gilbert Grape" - a role that would earn him both a Golden Globe and Oscar nomination.

Although DiCaprio starred in a number of other films including "Romeo and Juliet" and "The Basketball Diaries," it wasn't until 1997 that DiCaprio would experience what would be dubbed as "Leo-mania."

The blockbuster hit "Titanic" was the second highest grossing film of all time and it was DiCaprio's role as Jack Dawson that cemented his name as one of the biggest actors on the planet.

In the years following "Titanic," DiCaprio had leading roles in a number of critically acclaimed films including "Gangs of New York," "The Aviator" and "Departed" - all of which were directed by Martin Scorsese.

Today, DiCaprio is out with a new film called "Inception" which was written and directed by director Christopher Nolan.
