Son of Sarge?

Yesterday I was home watching the English Premier League match between Arsenal and Middlesbrough from London. The match ended in a 1-1 tie, but I noticed something during the game.

Middlesbrough has a tall central defender named Robert Huth. He's originally from Germany, and known as "The Berlin Wall" (as he was born there in 1984). But one look at this guy and it instantly reminded me of the "Sarge" himself, Mike Timlin.

Here's more on the German international soccer player, who once played for Chelsea: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Huth

He's built like Timlin, and just as tall (6'3''). There's a difference in their ages, about 18 years. It makes me wonder: did Sarge make any secret trips to Berlin in the early part of 1984 that we don't know about?
