Kieron Dyer
Club:Newcastle United
Position:Midfielder

It says so much about Kieron Dyer's ability that Sven-Goran Eriksson took him to the World Cup without really having had a decent look at him.

Breathtaking at his best, Dyer's young career has been dogged by long-term injury problems.

He only returned to action after his latest setback in March, but there has never been a question mark over his talent and Eriksson is content to take the gamble.

He is seen by many as the solution to England's problem on the left-side of midfield.

A dynamic and versatile play-maker, he knows when to raise the tempo.

Dyer possesses a good enough touch to take the ball past his opponent on his own accord.

He can also spot the space and make the necessary surge round the back to receive it.

Dyer has devastating pace and mesmerising skill and also has an eye for the perfect delivery.

Joined Newcastle from Ipswich for 6m in July 1999 and will be determined to be on the plane to Japan after being left out of Kevin Keegan's squad for Euro 2000.
