Benni McCarthy
Club:Celta Vigo
Position:Forward

Benni McCarthy is another of those whose influence at international level has been hindered by the tiresome club-versus-country arguments which rage over Africa's crowded fixture list.

He became the first South African to score a World Cup goal in France 98 but had a disappointing African Nations Cup this year.

Despite once being his country's most prolific striker, he scored just one goal in World Cup qualifying and failed to find the net at the Nations Cup.

McCarthy is strong in the air and thrives on the delivery of left-sided midfielder Quinton Fortune, and following his loan move to Porto he has found some form in the scoring stakes again.
