Stig Tofting

Club: Bolton
Position: Midfielder

Stig Tofting is still no stranger to the referee's notebook, but he has worked hard to improve his disciplinary record.

The hard man of Danish football was a frequent substitute in the last World Cup but has now become a first choice in the middle of the park.

His tough tackling and industrious approach to the game sees him fear no opponent.

Denmark may lack flair as a team, but Tofting's presence in the side means they have a chance of grafting their way through any game.

Premiership side Bolton identified him as the perfect man to help with their relegation fight when they signed him from SV Hamburg for 250,000 this February.
