34. Lukasz Piszczek
The Borussia Dortmund right-back was outstanding for the German side as they secured a domestic double winning the Bundesliga and DFB Pokal. Since signing for Dortmund on a free transfer in 2010, the Poland international has cemented his place in their starting XI, and drawn attention from across Europe with his marauding performances down the right flank for both club and country. At Euro 2012 he was one of the co-hosts' stand-out performers, looking superb as he bombed down the right wing from a deep position, particularly in the first group match against Greece when he provided the inch-perfect cross for his Dortmund team-mate Robert Lewandowski. Chelsea and Real Madrid remain long-term admirers of the 27-year-old and could make an offer for his services before the end of the current transfer window.
Editor's view - "Lukasz Piszczek has gone from being a fairly unknown quantity in the Bundesliga to the best full-back in Germany last year. His defensive play is solid while his ability to attack adds an extra dimension to Dortmund's offensive line-up. For a full-back to pick up eight Bundesliga assists is phenomenal and that is why he is so high up in the Goal.com 50." - Falko Bloeding - Assistant Chief editor of Goal.com Germany
