Vincent Candela
Club:Roma
Position:Defender

Vincent Candela is one of world's best left-backs, but, remarkably, he is not assured of a place in France's line-up.

Such is the calibre of the squad, the position on the left flank has generally gone to Bayern Munich's Bixente Lizarazu although both men have a fairly equal chance of starting.

Candela joined Roma back in February 1997 and has the ability to rip open defences with his sniping runs out wide.

He is quick on the break, which suits coach Roger Lemerre's approach, but has been known to leave gaps in defence.
