Umit Ozat

Club: Fenerbahce
Position: Defender

He may not have started as part of Turkey's original back four in qualifying but he stormed into contention from the midway point.

Now the 25-year-old is an established part of the team and intelligently holds the defence together.

Signed for Fenerbahce at the start of the season and it has been the making of his career.

Without him, both his club and country have looked lost.
