Dion Dublin #One2Eleven (4-4-2 Formation)

Dion Dublin was a guest on Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club in September 2014 where he picked the eleven best players he had ever played with in their #One2Eleven section of the show.

Dion Dublin One2Eleven

GK – John Vaughan – a keeper who I played with at Cambridge United. He was incredibly important and never let us down.

RB – Mark Delaney – the kind of people that would never let you down. Ryan Giggs says that he was the only right back that he never got the better of.

CB – Gareth Southgate – what a leader and a captain. The only person I still call “skipper” when I see them. I never saw him have a bad game.

CB – Gary Pallister – the best player I played against. Never got past him and never scored against him.

LB – Denis Irwin – anyone who has played with him would put him in their team. The most reliable footballer the Premier League has ever seen and brilliant with both feet.

RW – David Ginola –  when he was on song he was unplayable. You never knew which way he was going to go and very hard to mark.

CM – Bryan Robson – very hard to fault him. A leader and goalscorer who could pick out a pass. A genius.

CM – Paul Merson – some of the skills, passes and goals that he scored, I hadn’t seen anyone do that before.

LW – Ryan Giggs – the best left winger to have played in the Premier League and one of the best ever in world football. I have never seen anyone run as fast as he could with the ball.

ST – Darren Huckerby – when I played with him at Coventry he was the player who made me look better than I actually was. We had an incredible partnership and he knew my game so well. We played together for five years and during that time I made the England squad.

ST – Ian Wright – he talked me through the game when I made my England debut. I was so nervous he guided me through it.
