Landon Donovan

The outstanding American player of his generation. He only played 13 games for Everton while on loan from LA Galaxy but did enough to prove he will be a threat this summer. The 28-year-old generally plays slightly deeper than a recognised striker and scores from distance.

Valter Birsa

Fast and skilful, Birsa enjoyed a successful season on the left for Auxerre, helping them to third in the French first division last season. The 23-year-old was Slovenia's most impressive player in last September's defeat to England.

Karim Ziani

Last summer Ziani called time on a successful spell in France which culminated at Marseilles. He was hoping to step things up with a move to Wolfsburg but he has hardly played. He can be very creative but is prone to histrionics.
