Bixente Lizarazu
Club:Bayern Munich
Position:Defender

The flying full-back is one of the best left-sided players in the world.

At home on the left of defence or midfield, his pacy raids down the flank were a key feature of France's attacking quality in the last two European Championships and the World Cup.

He even scored a spectacular goal himself against South Africa in the group stages of France 1998.

Lizarazu has won plenty of trophies with Bayern Munich but missed the 2001 Champions League triumph because of a knee injury.

He has worked hard to develop his defensive game, backing up any surge forward with a willingness to quickly track back.
