PositionForward

The European Footballer of the Year in 2001, Michael burst on to the world scene in France '98, memorably with his sensational goal in the Second Round epic with Argentina.

Although that night in St Etienne ended in disappointment, it was a totally different story in September 2001 in Munich with his fantastic hat-trick leading to the amazing 5-1 victory against Germany.

He made his international bow in 1998 against Chile at Wembley at the age of 18 years and 59 days - England's youngest player of the 20th century.

Michael was his country's captain against Slovakia in June 2003 when he became the youngest-ever England player to win 50 caps.

Having signed for Liverpool shortly after his 17th birthday, Michael took only 184 appearances to score his 100th goal for the Reds.

He played a leading part in their triple trophy success of 2001 - UEFA Cup, FA Cup and League Cup - scoring both the goals in the FA Cup Final defeat of Arsenal.

He bagged another League Cup winners' medal in 2003.

The PFA's Young Player of the Year in 1998's all-round game continued to improve.

He joined Real Madrid in August 2004 with a four-year contract

Amid a media frenzy, Michael joined Newcastle United for a club record £16million.

His four years on Tyneside were dogged by injury and ended in relegation.

The ace marksman still managed to net 30 goals in 79 games however.

He joined Manchester United in July 2009 with a two-year contract that was extended to June 2012 in June 2011.

Michael joined Stoke City in September 2012 with a one-year contract.
