Arsenal fans will have bittersweet memories of their run to the Champions League final in 2006.

Their side, packing full of peak-Wenger era talent, knocked out Real Madrid and Juventus to reach the semi-finals of the competition for the first time.

Villarreal were edged out during two tense matches and Arsenal travelled to Paris to face Barcelona hoping to win their first-ever European Cup.

They even took the lead but an early sending-off meant Arsenal couldn’t hold back the Barca tide indefinitely. Second-half goals from Samuel Eto’o and Juliano Belletti sent the trophy to Spain and Arsenal are still waiting for their second final appearance.

We’re asking you to name the line-up that took to the field on a warm evening in the French capital.
