Marcel Schmelzer

With a distinctive headband a trademark of his each and every appearance, this left-back is a useful back-up option for Joachim Low to have on his bench at Euro 2012.

He has some experience of tournament football as he played in the successful Germany effort at the 2009 UEFA Under-19 championships and he has the belief of being a champion, after excelling in the successes of Borrussia Dortmund in the last couple of years.

While all in Germany will be hoping Nationalmannschaft captain Philipp Lahm remains fit and available throughout this tournament, Schmelzer could be relied upon to offer solid defensive qualities and plenty of attacking impetus as well. He is heading into this tournament on the back of a fine season in Borussia Dortmund colours.
