Sylvain Wiltord
Club:Arsenal
Position:Forward

Part of Arsenal's French legion, Wiltord made a name for himself at international level with his last-ditch heroics at Euro 2000.

First he scored the golden goal against Portugal in the semi-finals before replacing Christophe Dugarry in the final and levelling the match in the dying seconds to take France into extra time.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger parted with 13m to take him to Highbury in August 2000 but he initially struggled to settle in London.

Since then, he has found his footing as a forward or, alternatively, in the guise of a midfielder behind the front two.

However, he had better get used to the super-sub tag again, behind the likes of Thierry Henry and David Trezeguet.
