    When a legend such as Franz Beckenbauer, a World Cup winner with West Germany in 1974, heaps praise on a young player people tend to listen and everyone is talking about VfB Stuttgart's promising striker Mario Gomez.

    I saw this guy play one Bundesliga game on TV ealier this year and I was amazed. I was wondering why I'd never heard of a player this good before, and when I found out he was not only U21 but German, I was stunned.

    He has the capability to be one of the greats of his generation. Unbelievable vision and touch for a guy his size, nearly undefendable with the ball at his feet. Makes his teammates look brilliant. A coach's dream.
