Jens Lehmann

Club: Borussia Dortmund
Position: Goalkeeper

He failed to even get a look-in during qualifying and, with Oliver Kahn's reputation, little is expected to change for the forseeable future.

Like Butt, he enjoys being pushed into the penalty box to seal late winners, and scored a header with the last move of the game to equalise a Bungesliga match against his current club when playing for FC Schalke 04.

A dominant presence in goal, he has impressed on the international stage with his acrobatics and blocking.

He has a tendency to speak his mind in the press, which has not always ingratiated him to the fans.
