None really. Began watching football mid 90s but the first player I was truly in awe of was Ronaldinho. I had my favourites before then obviously but during his peak I ****ing loved him. Maybe even more than Messi.

The two that stick out for me are Thierry Henry and Andrea Pirlo.

Not sure about a particular player but remember Beckham being a massive figure of course. He was English, United, played a somewhat trendy position, was dating Posh Spice who was the fittest member of one of the biggest bands. It was easy to pretend to be Beckham practising freekicks, plus he wore the Predator boots, and in the pre total-90, Vapor era of Nike, anyone who was anyone at school had a pair of Pred's.

Alan Smith was a huge figure growing up in the late 90s/early 2000s

Not entirely sure but the first football I remember is Euro 2004 and the 2004-05 season, so probably Rooney. His was the first shirt I got.

Michael Owen. I was only four. My dad supports Liverpool and that combined with his goals made me a Liverpool fan and into football

Paul Gascoigne, when he played for Tottenham. I had a 'Gazza's Soccer School' VHS which I'd watch every Saturday for quite some time.

Yeah, Michael Owen for me. The goal in 1998 against Argentina was electrifying. It's hard to actually quantify now just how exciting it was at that time. I was nine or ten, and I'd enjoyed Euro 1996 to an extent but Shearer, Gascoigne and the others didn't really enthral me.

Owen was different. He was young, clean cut, explosive and a really good role model.
