Mario Gomez's storied career started with a bang, and he has continued to impress all the way through Euro 2012. As a 21-year old in 2006, Gomez led Bundesliga side Stuttgart to the Championship while being named German footballer of the year. Three years later, the stellar start to his career merited him the largest transfer fee in German football history at €30–35 million, and he shipped off to Bayern Munich.

 

After slow start at Bayern, Gomez quickly turned into an international superstar. He led the Bundesliga in goals in 2010/2011 and propelled his club to an appearance in the 2012 Champions League final. His German National team made a fine run to the semifinals of Euro 2012, but were outsted by Italy.
