Patrice Evra (France)
The left-back of Les Bleus and Manchester United has been a fixture in the starting XI for France for the past few years. Undoubtedly, he has great pace and is excellent going forward, a true modern left back.

He is a senior member of the team and has great influence on the younger players. Evra is an experienced player with the Red Devils and Sir Alex Ferguson did not hesitate to elect him captain a few times this past season. The former Monaco player was also in the FIFA Team of the Year for 2009. Clearly, he is the first choice in defence under Raymond Domenech and is well deserving of it. He does play more cautiously with Les Bleus than he does for Manchester United, but he may be given liscence to attack during the World Cup.

Did you know?

Patrice Evra started playing football in a city called Les Ulis where he met a certain Thierry Henry. So both players have been friends for a long time.
