Known for his colourful boots, trademark wrist band and exciting wing play Bastian Schweinsteiger provides the attacking flair the Germans sometimes lack. After playing at one club for the whole of career, it is hard to consider Bayern Munich without thinking of Schweinsteiger. He made his debut for the German giants at the age of 18 and made an instant impact. He is often perceived to have an arrogant streak and his hot-headed nature has got him into trouble in the past. Despite this, the midfielder has won four Bundesliga titles, four German Cups and two League Cups during a trophy-laden career. The recent transfer of Arjen Robben to Bayern Munich has resulted in Schweinsteiger playing in centre midfield, a position he has adapted too comfortably and his fearsome shot is always a danger wherever he plays. Winning his first international cap just before Euro 2004, Schweinsteiger forced his way into Rudi Voller's side during the competition and then went on to impress at the 2006 World Cup, scoring two stunning goals in the third place play-off win over Portugal. He is still a key player in the German side and appeared nine times in their World Cup qualifying campaign.
