With his combination of power in the air and comfort with the ball at his feet, Leicester City defender Harry Maguire has played a starring role in England's run to the semi-finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
So it is no surprise that he idolised two of the Premier League's greatest centre-backs who embodied those qualities.
John Terry's aerial prowess helped him win four titles and score 41 goals as Chelsea's captain, but Maguire admits it was Rio Ferdinand, who was a league champion on six occasions with Manchester United, who had the greatest influence on his style of play.
"The two greatest centre-halves when I was growing up were John Terry and Rio Ferdinand," said Maguire, who was speaking at his previous club Hull City in 2016/17.
"I really looked up to them, especially Rio Ferdinand, because he brought the ball out of defence really well. Very comfortable on the ball and he had a bit of everything in his prime. A great centre-half in his time."
Maguire, who scored the opener in England's 2-0 quarter-final victory over Sweden on Saturday, will hope to help the Three Lions reach the World Cup final for only the second time when they face Croatia on Wednesday.
