Former England captain Alan Shearer ticks the boxes.
When it comes to what you want from a No.9, Alan Shearer ticks all of the boxes.
Physical presence? Check. Good on the ball? Check. Possession of a wicked shot? Check. Good in the air? Does a bear do its business in the woods?
‘Big Al’ ran out for England 63
times, captaining them 34 times and returning 30 goals. At just 29, some feel he called time on his international career too soon but the time he did give the Three Lions, including a typically dominant display at France ’98, will be always be remembered.
