This young striker just switched over to Fulham from Olympiacos where he was the top striker of the club. He will be responsible for finishing in front of frame for his nation of Greece. At 25, he is nearing his prime so if he wants a move away from his relegated club, he needs to score at least five goals.

This man should start for his nation as he has scored goals for them on a countless number of occasions. If Radamel Falcao does not start due to injury, this man should take his place as he has what it takes to heave the pressure off his teammates by scoring goals. He drops back to help out the midfield as well, which can lead to swift counters.

3. Keisuke Honda (Japan)

Keisuke Honda recently moved to AC Milan in January and wears the No. 10 on his back. As the leader of Japan, he is responsible for scoring, assisting and playing as the commander in the center of the field. His trademark free-kicks are sublime as they could potentially save the day for his team. He will be Japan's most important player.

Radamel Falcao suffered a devastating knee injury earlier this year that was supposed to keep him out of action until after the tournament. However, with some good rehab and smart doctors, he may make it back just in time to be the No. 1 attacker for his native Colombia. In fact, he has to be there to give his country a fair chance at winning big.

Yaya Toure just played a huge role in Manchester City's Premier League championship as he was a mainstay in the midfield. For his country, he will have to put even more pressure on himself in order to help them push to become the first ever African nation to hoist the World Cup trophy. Quite frankly speaking, they have the best shot at doing so among all nations from their continent.
