Euro 2008: Who will you support? Newcastle
David Rozehnal and Emre
When Kevin Keegan re-took the reins as Newcastle manager in January, he could have been forgiven for thinking he was walking into a doctor's surgery and not a football club on his first day.

As many as 14 players occupied the treatment room between January and May, and one player who knew the medical staff as well as anybody was Emre.

However, the 27-year-old combative midfielder, with an eye for a pass, is fit and ready to lead Turkey's assault in Austria and Switzerland - and Keegan himself has tipped him to have a big impact.

Ironically, Emre's Turkey are in Group A alongside the Czech Republic, for whom Newcastle's forgotten man David Rozehnal will play a big role.

The defender spent the last half of the season on loan with Lazio, but this could be the perfect chance to show he still has a future at St James' Park.
