Brothers (or other relatives) playing against each other in international competetion

Has there every been a case of Brothers/Cousins playing against each other internationally?

Off the top of my head, Marco and Giulio Scandella represent Canada and Italy respectively, but I can't find any record of them playing against one another.

Any others?

František Tikal (Czechoslovakia) vs Zdeněk 'Steve' Tikal (Australia) at the 1960 Olympics (twin brothers!). Robert Reichel (Czech Republic) vs Martin Reichel (Germany) at the 2002 Olympics.

Steve Rucchin (Canada) played against his brother Larry (Italy) in the Worlds back in the 90s.

The Chappot brothers, Maurice and Roger. At the 1963 World Championship
Pool B tournament in Stockholm, with Maurice playing for France and Roger for
Switzerland, they faced each other on opposite sides on 11th of March, with
the Swiss winning 5-0 and Roger Chappot scoring the 3rd goal for Switzerland.

Roger ended his career playing in 103 national games for Switzerland from 1958-
1972, while Maurice played on the French national team from 1959-1966.

Miroslav Hlinka (SVK) played against his cousin Jaroslav Hlinka (CZE) durin WC in 2002 or 2003, possibly both. Lazy to dig exact match.

Were they raised in France or Switzerland?
