The European Ryder Cup squad will feature a roster full of veterans, with only Nicolas Colsaerts making his maiden appearance at the biennial event.

Lee Westwood (7 appearances) and Sergio Garcia (5) are the elder statesmen for the squad.

There are eight players in their 30s on the European squad, with one in their 40s (Paul Lawrie) and three in their 20s (Rory McIlroy the youngest at 23).

Jose Maria Olazabal is the captain for the European squad, while Darren Clarke, Thomas Bjorn, Paul McGinley and Miguel Angel Jimenez will assist Olazabal.

Here is a player-by-player look at the European squad, including their records in previous Ryder Cups and history at Medinah for the 1999 and 2006 PGA Championships.
