Marc-Vivien Foe
Club:Lyon
Position:Midfielder

Having seen his World Cup dreams wrecked by injury four years ago, Marc-Vivien Foe will be determined to make up for lost time in the Far East.

Still in his mid-20s, he is already one of the Indomitable Lions' most experienced players having won his first cap at the age of just 17.

Foe started his career in France with Lens where he won the title in 1996.

He has a huge presence in midfield and is a real threat going forward - scoring three times in six World Cup qualifiers.

He is impressive at times, but a lack of pace and consistency meant his stay in the English Premiership with West Ham in 1999 was a short one.

The Hammers nevertheless made a massive profit as they shipped him back to France with Lyon for 6m.

Foe has played in the Champions League this season and had a successful African Nations Cup this year scoring in the semi-final victory over Mali.
