Emile Heskey - England (PA)
Not a regular scorer of goals throughout his career, Heskey has been popular at a string of clubs due to his strong build and aerial abilities, and Capello favours him when he does want a partner for Wayne Rooney over other English strikers.

Heskey isn't even a guaranteed first-team regular at Aston Villa, battling with Norwegian John Carew for the nod as Gabby Agbonlahor's strike partner, but he offers something no other England player does with his physical presence.

Did you know?

Heskey was nicknamed "Bruno" while at Leicester, due to his likeness of former heavyweight boxer Frank Bruno.
