Darijo Srna

A right-sided player whose pace and agility has been used both at the back or in a more advanced role, Srna has always been a decent contributor of goals for the Croatian national team since making his international debut in 2002.

A star turn in the Euro 2008 qualifiers, he scored a couple of vital goals as Croatia saw off the challenge of a faltering England side and this ex-Hajduk Split star will be a pivotal figure for Croatia boss Slaven Bilic this summer.

Paper talk: Srna has long been linked with a move to a 'major' European club and a solid performance in Euro 2008 may see rumours of a move to Paris Saint Germain or the English Premier League come to fruition.

Strengths: Versatility, high work-rate and excellent set-piece delivery; Srna is also known to have icy nerves from the penalty spot.

Weaknesses:

Career low:

Style: A versatile player who oozes professionalis and is able to play right-back or right-midfield, with great stamina to get up and down the flank.
