The qualification matches for next year’s European Championships in France are coming to a close and it is now apparent which teams are likely to progress.

Iceland, Czech Republic and England have already secured their place in the finals, with a number of British teams also close as Wales and Northern Ireland are on top of their groups and Scotland and the Republic of Ireland are not out of the running.

Each team in contention has their talisman; most of which are expected to perform in the tournament next year. The likes of Wayne Rooney, Gareth Bale, Thomas Muller, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Andrea Pirlo, Eden Hazard, Robert Lewandowski, Andres Iniesta and Cristiano Ronaldo already have the expectation on them should their teams qualify.

This creates the path for another star to shine through; another quality footballer that has the option to play freely without heaps of anticipation on their shoulders. In a tournament with no clear winner, here are five players who could stand out and lead their team to glory.
