Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Club:Ajax
Position:Forward

Four years younger than any of the remaining Swedish attackers, Ibrahimovic has only been used sparingly so far.

The 20-year-old made one substitutes appearance in qualifying and scored almost immediately, but he lacks the big game experience of the likes of Henrik Larsson or Marcus Allback.

He was brought from Malmo to Ajax for 5.7m and has impressed in a series of performances.

His height - he stands at six foot - belies his speed and movement across the field.

Opinion is divided over his potential but Fabio Capello has already described him as the new Marco van Basten.
