Khalilou Fadiga

Club: Auxerre
Position: Midfielder

Fadiga will line up for his country in the knowledge that his national alliegance was almost consigned to Europe.

He considered the prospect of playing for Belgium at international level but was politely told his opportunities could be limited.

The call from Senegal came, however, and, from there, he was one of the major figures in qualifying. He played in eight out of his side's 10 matches.

A regular member of the Auxerre team, his offensive-minded play has produced two goals on the international stage.
