Towering forward who offers a ‘Plan B’ in attack.

He is by no means prolific at club level, but Ameobi’s slow and belated start to live with the national side has been promising.

Having spent 14 years with boyhood club Newcastle United his contract came to an end this summer. The World Cup provides a glorious opportunity for the 32-year-old to put himself in the shop window and set the wheels in motion for a career swansong.

He offers extensive experience and a change of pace up front.
