Gary Breen

Just thinking back on years past, has there ever been a better center back than Gary Breen?

He was the best player in the 2002 World Cup by far, even heading in a goal against a stingy Saudi defense. He won 63 caps for his country, and banged in some of the finest goals you will see. He scored the same amount of international goals as the top international marksman that is Emile Heskey.

After that World Cup, Inter Milan put in a world record transfer bid for him, believed to be in the region of £70m. Breen turned down the offer as he didn't see a challenge in it, and chose to resurrect West Ham instead.

We all have to admit to at some stage dreaming of a team of Gary Breens.


Here he is after scoring goal of the tournament against the watertight Saudis.
