Juan Sebastian Veron
Club:Manchester United
Position:Midfielder

Juan Sebastian Veron is the crux of the Argentine national side, the starting point for almost every move from the south Americans.

Hence much was expected following his 28.1m switch from Lazio to Manchester United at the start of the 2001/02.

If anything, Veron's arrival unsettled United's midfield structure, but England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson's favourite player looks set to be back to his controlling best for the Argentina.

The 27-year-old relishes the dead ball situation, is renowned for the pin-point accuracy of his passing and has a lethal strike.

He already boasts World Cup experience having represented his country five times at France 98.
