Dennis Rommedahl - He won his first cap against the Faroe Islands in August 2000 and made such an impression that he was ever-present in his country's successful campaign to qualify for the 2002 World Cup finals. He is one of Denmark's most experienced players with almost 100 caps under his belt and he is still Morten Olsen's preferred choice as an attacking midfielder in his 4-3-3 formation.

A small and nippy right-sided winger, he developed with Lyngby before pursuing his career in the Netherlands with PSV Eindhoven and RKC Waalwijk (on loan from PSV). He was a success in Dutch football with the ability to outrun rival defenders with his fast wing-runs and excellent crossing ability.

Rommedahl made the switch from Dutch to English football in the summer of 2004. After being linked with several European clubs he decided to sign for Charlton Athletic.

His second season saw him flourish as he took a leading role in helping Charlton up towards the top of the premiership. In the summer of 2007 he made the move back to Dutch football when he signed for Ajax where he is still playing.
