CHAMPIONS LEAGUE DEBUT: 2004
TEAM(S): Manchester United
England and Manchetser United's enfant terrible is part bully, part brat, but all class once the ball's at his feet. Rooney can play in a number of different positions, but seems to excel most when supporting a main striker (thank him later, Chicharito). And while the pie-faced Picasso hasn't always been the lead dog in the United attack during his career, the past two seasons have shown he's fully capable of taking the reins and continuing the Red Devils' recent unprecedented champions league run under Sir Alex Ferguson.
