Andreas Isaksson (Sweden) Rated as highly as Petr Cech as a youngster, Andreas Isaksson has had a mixed career.

Known for his infamous tracksuit bottoms, Kiraly will become the only ever 40-year-old to play at a European Championship if selected by Hungary for next year’s competition.

6. Zoltan Gera (Hungary) Zoltan Gera played 120 times for Fulham and 165 times in two spells at West Brom, including an integral part during their great escape from relegation in the 2004/5 season. But this Baggies fan favourite is not necessarily someone you would expect to see at the European Championship next summer.

2. Tamas Priskin (Hungary) Former Watford and Ipswich striker Priskin scored a fantastic goal to help Hungary qualify for France. The ball was played long from defence for the 29-year-old to run onto. With two defenders closing him, he allowed the ball to run into the area before taking a sharp touch with his right foot to move the ball away from his markers. With space now created for a shot, the forward struck the ball with pace and...
