Genuinely regarded as one of the most exciting players of his generation, Southampton winger Danny Wallace (he is pictured above playing for the Saints on St. Valentine's day 1984), lightning quick and with a petrifying low centre of gravity, was tipped for England honours from the very start of his career as a 16 year old. It took six years before his chance came, with Bobby Robson giving him a late opportunity to gatecrash the 1986 World Cup squad when he pitched him into a sweltering friendly in Cairo. England waltzed past Egypt 4-0, Wallace scored the second goal, and was not asked back. He is in the select band of players with one cap and goal to their name, but ultimately it was the lack of belief in him as an out-and-out striker or winger, when he did both (often at once) at Southampton, which probably made Robson's mind up. He continued to dominate Southampton's spearhead for the rest of the decade, but even a big move to Manchester United in 1989 couldn't rekindle his international chances. (Matthew Rudd)
