In a way, Mattia Perin cannot win. When he finally does make his debut for Italy, comparisons will inevitably be drawn with the achievements of some his predecessors; Dino Zoff, the World Cup-winning captain; Walter Zenga, the man who still holds the record for the longest amount of time without conceding a goal at a World Cup; and Gianluigi Buffon, record appearance holder for Gli Azzurri and Perin's own childhood hero.

It is easy to see why the 4-2-3-1 formation is so popular. The back four is protected by the security of two midfielders, while there is natural width high up the pitch to flank a central striker.

Jordi Alba
(Valencia / Spain)

On the face of it, Jordi Alba might just have lucked out. If all goes well he's just about to sign for the Greatest Club Side Of All Time TM and established himself as the outstanding candidate for the reigning world and European champions only real problem position (though as problem positions go, it's not far off being as minor an issue for Spain as the clamour over that prestigious third goalkeeper slot) at a time when it can't really be denied that they have by far the strongest squad going into Euro 2012.

Nolito
(Benfica / Spain)

Signing a Barcelona player would, in itself, normally suffice to excite fans of any club. However, the fact the Spanish forward was just one of a plethora of new signings at Benfica this summer, which included the much heralded Bruno César, Enzo Pérez and Axel Witsel, meant that when the 2011/12 season kicked off, Nolito was considered anything but the star turn.

Eduardo Vargas
(Universidad de Chile / Chile)

Universidad de Chile have conquered the 2011 Copa Sudamericana in stunning fashion. Undefeated, with only two goals against in twelve matches, and a delightful style of football that brought back memories of La U's golden years in the '60s, when they were known as Ballet Azul and won five of their fourteen league titles.
