Sol Campbell
Club:Arsenal
Position:Defender

A mountain in defence, Campbell continues to attract criticism for his poor distribution.

Nevertheless he is a hugely imposing figure, unbeatable in the air and strong in the tackle - as he proved with a superb performance in his team's 1-0 win over Argentina in Sapporo.

Campbell was in superb form at France 98 - where he was not only a rock at the back but made some memorable surges out of defence to carry the ball forward.

After almost 10 years at Tottenham the 27-year-old made a controversial free transfer to fierce rivals Arsenal last summer.

He will no doubt have benefited from playing at Highbury, both in their Double campaign and in the Champions League.

Dangerous in the opposition's area, he has pitched in with goals at club level throughout his career.
