Euro 2008: Who will you support? Aston Villa
Wilfred Bouma
Aston Villa may just have the one player in Austria and Switzerland this summer, but there is no chance he will be going to Euro 2008 cold.

Wilfred Bouma will join the Netherlands squad having started every single Premier League match for Villa this season, playing a key role in helping Martin O'Neill's men to an impressive sixth-placed finish.

Now the defender, who celebrates his 30th birthday during the tournament, must turn his attentions to helping the Dutch fulfil their vast potential at a major championship.

He may have to do it mainly as a squad player, but "Freddie" - Mr Dependable - could yet prove a valuable asset.
