Club: Manchester United
Once England's most prolific midfield goalscorer, the goals have dried up for Scholes.
Scholes has not scored at international level since June 2001 against Greece but remains one of the first names on Sven-Goran Eriksson's teamsheet.
He is, despite a barren spell in front of goal, England's most technically gifted midfielder who can create chances with his intelligent passing.
Scholes also has vast, and invaluable, experience at the highest level for club and country.
