The Ajax that could have been, had they been able to hold on to their stars, From Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Luis Suarez

Ajax go into Tuesday evening's Champions League match away against Olympique Lyonnais knowing that a win or a score draw would send them through to the knockout stages of European club football's elite tournament for the first time since 2005-06.

The Amsterdam giants were one of the dominant club sides in the 1990s and reached consecutive finals in 1995 and 1996. Nevertheless, they have since failed to make a real impact in Europe due to various reasons.

That doesn't mean that Ajax no longer produce some of the world's finest talents though as key players at clubs like AC Milan, Inter, Liverpool and Manchester City all have a history at the Eredivisie champions.

Take a look at those who left the Amsterdam ArenA in recent years and puts together an export XI that would pose a stern test for any opponent.
