Rui Costa
Club:AC Milan
Position:Midfielder

Along with Luis Figo, Rui Costa is one of the creative forces behind Portugal.

The midfielder joined AC Milan during the 2001-2002 season having been at another Serie A club, Fiorentina, since 1994.

Costa possesses the full complement of skills: perfect passing ability, poise under pressure and a predator's instinct in front of goal.

His surging, mazy runs from midfield are a trademark and he chooses to leave defensive duties to the less talented.

A member of the 1991 side that won the Under-20 World Cup, he gained full international honours against Switzerland in 1993.
