~Key Player Profiles~

Francesco Toldo - The Former Italian cap Toldo is a vastly experienced goalkeeper, however for much of his international career has had to play second fiddle to Gianluigi Buffon. Toldo is a fine shot-stopper.

Marco Materazzi - World Cup winner with Italy in Germany. The tall centre half is a very physical player, as proved in that final. Good in the air, strong in the tackle and a leader at the back.

Pierre Wome - Former Leeds United left wing back is approaching his second season at the San Siro. Wome is good going forward down the left-hand side and an excellent crosser of the ball.

Luis Figo - The former Portugal captain retired from international football this summer having won over one hundred caps. The hundredth of which he won in a one all draw with England. A good set piece taker, deadly from free kicks, and comfortable on either foot.

Esteban Cambiasso - Along with Figo, Samuel and Solari left Real Madrid last season to join Mancini`s Inter. The Argentine cap is an influential midfielder in the middle of the park as a holding midfielder. He also gets forward to score goals too.

Adriano - The Brazilian striker moved to the San Siro for a huge transfer fee having announced his arrival in Serie 'A` with Parma, a former club of team-mate Juan Veron. Powerfully built, good in the air and lightening fast he possesses a weapon known as his left foot.

Watford have played Inter before. They played during Vialli's one and only pre-season in Italy (Lecco) with Watford losing 2-1.
