Top Guns of FIFA World Cup 2010

In soccer, sports on June 4, 2010 at 11:59 am

Only seven days remaining  before the unfolding of biggest soccer extravaganza on this planet.

In an earlier post, I had listed the teams which are all time favorites and are likely to appear in the semi final lineup in South Africa.

Let us now focus our attention on individuals who must be keenly watched for their amazing & sterling soccer techniques & capabilities. The top guns of soccer who will be setting ablaze the world football arena with their awesome shooting &  fire power to lift the coveted cup for their nation and Golden Boot for themselves are listed here.

Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi - His stop-and-go moves and brazen attacks make him the most exciting player in Europe — but can he blend in with Argentina's talent and all-new tactics

Wayne Rooney - Since bombing out in '06 on a red card, England's one-man strike force has had a calmer head. And a better one: he nodded in seven straight goals in one '09 stretch.

Fernando Torres

Fernando Torres - A World Class striker at club level that is still waiting to set alight the International game. Fully capable of scoring goals in South Africa but may have to play second fiddle behind his more proven teammate, David Villa.

Cristiano Ronaldo - Whislt a prolific goal scorer at club level, Ronaldo has yet to capture that kind of form for Portugal. He cannot be ruled out of shining on the biggest stage of all in South Afirca but his chances of winning the Fifa Golden Boot are restriced by his country's chances of progressing to the later stages of the World Cup

Fabiano Luis - A striker with unrivalled goalscoring form at International level but has never played in a World Cup finals at the age of 29. Lack of experience on the biggest stage and a tricky group for Brazil could see him struggle but remains a leading golden shoe contender.

David Villa - The man every other striker in South Africa must out-score. Proven he has what it takes in major tournaments after top scoring in Euro 2008, David Villa should be well in contention for the top goalscorer prize at the World Cup with Spain sure to be going a long way in the competition.
