Heiko Westermann was born August 1983 in Alzenau and is a tall multi-talented player in defense and a very important part of club side Schalke 04. His first match for the German national team was in February of 2008 and a few months later he celebrated his first success: becoming a finalist at Euro 2008 in Austria and Switzerland. In June 2009, he scored his first goal in Germany's 7-2 triumph over United Arab Emirates. The 2010 World Cup could potentially be the highlight of his career. 

Westermann is a very flexible and dynamic player, who adapts to every position in defense and even can deputise in midfield. His best performances often come when in the position of central defender, due to his physique and size.
