The attacking of the team is quite phenomenal. Likes of Robin Van Persie (Manchester United) and ArjenRobben (Bayern Munchen) will be the key figures for the side. With Robin Van Persie’s exceptional goal scoring abilities – which we saw when he transferred to Red Devils last season and became the leading goal scorer of the league helping Sir Alex Ferguson win his last league title – will be the source of goals for the team in the tournament. With his best form, Van Persie is capable of helping the team get the cup.

Similarly, on the wing position, ArjenRobben will equally be the driving force of the team. Characteristics such as, incisive passes, agility, acceleration, skills, shooting abilities, sublime finishes, vision and positioning, best describe him as a player. Notably criticized as a selfish player – for passing less frequently and going for himself – Robben can be culprit for disregarding possible goal scoring opportunities. But the fact that he can opportunities to himself undermines his selfish act in most of the instances.
