If he has someone to bring him the ball, he will score. Matias Delgado, Al Jazira, midfielder. Great football brain, and at 29 still in his prime, as more and more of the imports here are. Ricardo Oliveira, Al Jazira, striker. A man who was scoring goals for Betis and Zaragoza in Spain just over two years ago, and had seven in only 15 games with Sao Paolo last fall, he was probably the best athlete in the league when he rejoined Jazira at the winter break.
Great speed and a nose for the net. He is 31, so he needs a good season to get another big contract. David Trezeguet, Baniyas, striker.

Scored three goals in the World Cup last year, including one against the U. The questions here are his conditioning and his emotional makeup. But he is 25, presumably at the peak of his powers, and could trash the league if he cares enough to make it a priority. He is on a one-season loan.
Grafite, Al Ahli, striker. This guy was voted the best player in the Bundesliga German League just three years ago while with Wolfsburg.
