Bio

One of the biggest talents of his generation, Wesley Sneijder plays a key role in making the Netherlands' attack tick. He can play in either a central attacking position or on either flank, but is most likely to be employed as the attacking member of a midfield three in this Dutch side – just as he is used by Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan. A tricky playmaker, with an eye for a pass and the perfect player to utilise the talents of Holland's forwards, Sneijder could be a big star of the tournament if Holland make it to the latter stages. After excelling in a five-year spell at Ajax, he signed for Real Madrid in a 27 million euro deal in 2007, where he spent two successful seasons, winning the La Liga title in his first season. Competition for places saw him move to Inter in 2009, where he has continued to live up to his reputation, playing a key role in the Champions League demolition of Chelsea in the last 16 of the competition – one of the most impressive displays of the season. Sneijder's role for Holland in qualifying was limited, due to injuries and competition for places, but will be a dangerous sub in South Africa if he fails to make the starting XI.
