Euro 2016: Five players who can decide the outcome of Group F
4: David Alaba (Austria)
At the age of 23, Alaba has won it all at club level. Be it the Champions League or the Bundesliga, he has been there and done that. Arguably the most versatile footballer in the world, Alaba can thrive at any position he plays. Be it at left back or holding midfield or left wing, Alaba has done it all and has had tremendous success, regardless of where he is deplpoyed.
Used primarily as a holding midfielder for Austria, Alaba needs to pull the strings while shielding the defence. Possessing an exquisite passing range, and a strong left foot, Alaba can unleash long range strikes which frequently find the back of the net. With the likes of Marko Arunautovic and Marc Janko in the side, Austria are poised to go through to the knockout stages for the first time in the country’s history.
