Key Player - Oliver Bierhoff

Striker Oliver Bierhoff made his name by coming off the bench to score twice for Germany in their victory over the Czech Republic in the final of Euro 96.

Since then the 30-year-old has rejected big money offers to stay in Italy with Udinese.

Bierhoff also came to his country's rescue during the World Cup campaign. As a second half substitute in Northern Ireland he scored a hat-trick in seven minutes - a German national record - after his team had been trailing.

He also headed a late winner in a 4-3 win over Albania in the final qualifier.
