Dietmar Hamann

Club: Liverpool
Position: Midfielder

Classy midfielder Dietmar Hamann was an influential figure in Liverpool's treble trophy success of 2000-01 as well as their push for the Champions League and Premiership this year.

His ideal position for Germany is just in front of the back four from where he can dictate the midfield.

But the former Bayern Munich and Newcastle ace can play further forward.

Famous for his free-kicks and long-range goals, such as the one he scored at Wembley when Germany beat England in the qualifiers, Hamman consistently rises to the big occasion.

He is also strong defensively and his positional and tactical awareness is second to none.
