A promising young striker with bags of ability, Nicklas Bendtner has the ingredients to be a great player but his concentration and effort has come under question over recent seasons. He is seen by many as one of the most unpredictable and frustrating players in English football. He worked his way through the youth ranks at Danish sides B.93 and FC Copenhagen's feeder club Kjobenhavns Boldklub before Arsene Wenger snapped the youngster up in summer 2004. The tall striker spent the first year of his Arsenal career in the reserves and showed great promise and as a reward was handed his first team debut against Sunderland in the League Cup on 25th October 2005. Bendtner spent the 2006/2007 season with then-Championship side Birmingham City, where he netted 11 goals in 42 appearances and the loan was deemed a success. However, upon his return to the Emirates, Bendtner was offered the chance to leave the club on loan again for the 2007/2008 season but opted to stay and ended up playing an important role that season. Bendtner is regarded as one of Denmark's key players. He represented Denmark at under-16, 17, 19 and 21 level before making his full debut in a friendly match against Poland on 16th August 2006, where he scored after 30 minutes to help Denmark to a 2-0 win. The Gunners front man played an important role in the qualification for South Africa and will be a big player for the Danes.
