Scott Carson

One of only a handful of England internationals to have pursued a career abroad, goalkeeper Scott Carson joined Turkish club Bursaspor in 2011 after a three-year spell with West Bromwich Albion FC. A former Under-21 international, his senior career for England stalled when he made a critical error in a vital UEFA EURO 2008 qualifier against Croatia.

• Born in Whitehaven, he joined the Leeds United AFC academy and made three Premier League appearances for the club before they lost their top-flight place in 2004.

• Moved to Liverpool FC but despite making waves with England U21s he failed to dislodge Jerzy Dudek from the No1 slot; he did, however, collect a UEFA Champions League winners' medal as an unused substitute in the epic 2005 final against AC Milan in Istanbul.

• After a short spell on loan to Sheffield Wednesday FC he spent the whole of the 2006/07 campaign with Charlton Athletic FC and made 36 top-flight appearances but could not save the south London club from relegation; with Pepe Reina firmly established at Anfield, he was farmed out again in 2007/08, to Aston Villa FC.

• An unused 2006 FIFA World Cup squad member, he played all four matches at the 2007 UEFA European U21 Championship and was handed his senior debut in a friendly against Austria later that year; the following week he was selected by Steve McClaren for an all-important UEFA EURO 2008 qualifier at Wembley but spilled a shot from Niko Kranjčar which gave Croatia the lead in a game England lost 3-2.

• Joined West Brom on a four-year contract in July 2008; relegation was followed by promotion and after 110 league appearances he left in summer 2011 for Bursaspor.

• Good form in the Turkish Süper Lig earned him a recall for England and 45 minutes of action in a November 2011 friendly against Sweden.
