Michał Żewłakow

A Polish international for over a decade, Michał Żewłakow represented his country at the 2002 and 2006 FIFA World Cups as well as UEFA EURO 2008. Normally considered a left-back, he can operate anywhere in defence and is also a useful asset at free-kicks with his powerful shooting.

• Born in Warsaw, he finished runner-up in Ekstraklasa with KSP Polonia Warszawa before moving, with twin brother Marcin, to Belgium in 1998, joining KSK Beveren on loan.

• One season at Beveren was followed by three at R. Excelsior Mouscron, for whom he signed permanent deal – again with his twin in tow; ended his stay there by reaching Belgian Cup final, in which Mouscron were defeated 3-1 by Club Brugge KV.

• Left brother to join RSC Anderlecht after both played at 2002 World Cup; won two Belgian titles (2003/04 and 2005/06) and played in three successive UEFA Champions League campaigns for Brussels side.

• Played in all three games for Poland at both 2006 World Cup and UEFA EURO 2008 under coach Leo Beenhakker, who appointed him as team captain; completed decade as international and bypassed 90-cap mark during 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign.

• Left Anderlecht for Olympiacos in 2006; a title winner in each of his first three seasons, he reached the UEFA Champions League knockout phase for the first time in 2007/08 and repeated the feat in 2009/10.
