Christian Fuchs (Austria)
Austria may have only qualified for their first ever European Championships in 2008, and missed out on the last four World Cups, but they were one of the stand out teams in the race for Euro 2016.
In a group featuring Russia, Sweden and Montenegro, the Austrians cruised to France with a record of nine wins and one draw from ten matches.
Captained by Foxes defender Christian Fuchs, Marcel Koller’s side were victorious in their final two matches of the process against Montenegro and Liechtenstein to make it nine wins in a row. They will certainly be one to watch next summer.
