5. Shola Ameobi

Shola Ameobi has scored 76 goals in 368 appearances for Newcastle United, but also netted seven times for the England U21 side between 2000 and 2003. 

After moving to Tyneside at five, Ameobi was, until last year, fully eligible to represent his adopted country, but the 31-year-old striker never managed to convert his 20 U21 appearances into a senior international cap and, in 2012, he lost patience with the Three Lions and made his debut for his native Nigeria.
