Nicky Butt
England's Nicky Butt
Born: 21/01/75
Position: Midfielder
Club: Manchester United
Caps: 34
Goals: 0

Came to prominence during an impressive series of displays for England in the 2002 World Cup, and has become a reliable option for Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Returned to the England starting line-up against Turkey and enjoyed a hugely impressive display at the base of the diamond formation.

May not be a regular at Manchester United and at one stage looked to be moving elsewhere in the Premiership, but his experience and solidity make him a serious option for Eriksson.

Butt is an ideal alternative for the drive of Steven Gerrard and the attacking instincts of Paul Scholes.
