Alexis Sanchez hit out at the football culture in England
Alexis Sanchez hit out at the football culture in England

Amado Guevara

No spring chicken at 34 but a legend in Honduras for whom he is the record cap holder with 134. Known as 'El Lobo' or 'The Wolf' - and after a decent club career in the US he hopes to end his career on a high.

David Villa

The Barcelona-bound striker is both a great goalscorer and a scorer of great goals. With 37 goals from 56 games, his strike rate is vastly superior to that of partner Fernando Torres (23 from 72). He will soon replace Raul as Spain's all-time top goalscorer on 44, possibly even at the World Cup.

Tranquillo Barnetta

The left winger has shouldered the responsibility for being Switzerland's main source of creativity since he became a regular five years ago. Shortlisted for Fifa's Best Young Player award at the last World Cup, he has just enjoyed his best season with Bayer Leverkusen.
