My guess is Thierry Henry - and its pretty hard to say that as a Spurs fan! Rooney is another possible, he was training with the England team yesterday and despite earlier doom and gloom it wouldn't surprise me if he actually started in the first game now.

You never know though, some who should shine are often anonymous, and sometimes you see brilliant play from players you have never heard of, especially from the African countries.

Defintely Messi - just look how he played in the Champions League and most probably he will be one of the finest young player.

Kaka is a Brazilian Midfielder who plays for AC Milan. Real name is Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite. He is one of the finest midfielders in the world, with his technical ability and his eye for a killer pass.

He's a rather famous player...surprised you haven't heard of him

Who does everyone think will be the young player to burst onto the scene as a star this world cup?

10 Ronaldinho




Date of birth: 21 March 1980
Height: 178 cm
Weight: 70 kg
Position: Midfielder
Current Club: Barcelona (ESP)
Int'l Goals: 27 (as of 5-Jun-2006)
Int'l Caps: 63 (as of 5-Jun-2006)
First Int'l Cap: Brazil v. Latvia (26-Jun-1999)


Profile
Despite being blessed with breathtaking skill and almost supernatural ball control, the endearingly-modest Ronaldinho Gaucho still blushes when he is mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Zico or Pele. He may not pursue the kind of legendary status afforded to Brazilian greats Garrincha, Didi or Vava, but with each passing game the feeling grows that Ronaldinho could become one of the finest players the world has ever seen.
Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, better known as Ronaldinho, was born on 21 March 1980 in the Restinga district of Porto Alegre, in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. At the age of seven, older brother Roberto Assis, a professional at local side Gremio Porto Alegre, took the talented youngster to join his club’s youth set-up. The Barcelona star has never forgotten his sibling’s help in getting him where he is today. “My biggest hero is my brother. He’s a shining example as a father, a brother and a footballer.”

Eight years on, Ronaldinho received his first call-up for the Brazilian national team’s junior side, and two years later he was a member of the team that won the FIFA U-17 World Championship in Egypt.

The Brazilian maestro turned professional in 1998, celebrating his first contract by helping Gremio to a 1-0 win over Rio de Janeiro side Vasco de Gama.

It would be another year before ‘Ronnie’ caught the eye of the world’s footballing elite. In 1999, having top-scored in his side’s State Championship win, Ronaldinho made his official debut for the Seleção in a friendly against Latvia. During that year’s Copa America, the fleet-footed forward gave a tantalising glimpse of what was to come with a wonder goal in Brazil’s 7-0 rout of Venezuela.

Namesake Ronaldo
It was around that time, as Ronaldinho’s career began to take off, that he was christened with the surname Gaucho, used to describe people from the Rio Grande do Sul region, in order to avoid confusion with the other Ronaldo, still known by many Brazilians as Ronaldinho. Nowadays, the pair’s fame has reached such levels that such a distinction is no longer necessary.

In 2001, the rising star moved from Gremio to French side Paris Saint-Germain, though not without a protracted transfer wrangle between the parties involved. The move was completed in time for Ronaldinho to seal a place in the Auriverde squad for the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan™, where he played a vital role in Brazil’s success.

In the aftermath of his country’s record fifth FIFA World Cup win, Ronaldinho returned to PSG, although not for very long. Despite speculation linking him with both Manchester United and Real Madrid, he ended up at Catalan giants Barcelona, who forked out a club-record €30m for his signature.

The FIFA World Cup winner arrived at Barça in time for the 2003/04 campaign when, after a rocky start to the season, a Ronaldinho-inspired revival saw Barcelona clinch second place behind Valencia. In 2005, the attacker reaffirmed his hero status in the eyes of the Azulgrana supporters with nine league goals and umpteen assists in his side’s 17th Primera Liga title win, their first since 1998/99.

Currently one of the most famous faces in world football, Ronaldinho has amassed an admirable collection of individual awards in a relatively short space of time. In 2005 he was presented with France Football magazine’s Golden Ball, awarded to the European Player of the Year, before crowning an amazing 12 months with his second consecutive FIFA World Player of the Year award.

Technically brilliant and a wonderful dribbler, Ronaldinho is an automatic choice in Carlos Alberto Parreira’s Brazil side at the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany.

Despite all his success, Ronaldinho admits: “I used to be always thinking about bizarre things, I was a real dreamer. During the World Cup in 1994, I watched Romario smile and thought: ‘I want to look like that.’ Later on, when Ronaldo was voted the best player in the world, I wanted to be just like him…” The charismatic Brazilian’s words are proof of one thing: Dreams do sometimes come true

12 Thierry Henry



Date of birth: 17 August 1977
Height: 188 cm
Weight: 83 kg
Position: Forward
Current Club: Arsenal (ENG)
Int'l Goals: 32 (as of 4-Jun-2006)
Int'l Caps: 77 (as of 4-Jun-2006)
First Int'l Cap: France v. South Africa (11-Oct-1997

Profile
At the FIFA World Cup France 1998™, Aime Jacquet’s squad included several attackers who, although highly talented, lacked experience at international level. At that time, the reputations of both David Trezeguet and Thierry Henry were confined to French borders.
Today, Henry is not only regarded as one of the finest strikers on the planet, but has also become a genuine phenomenon in his seven seasons in the English Premiership with Arsenal. As clubs all over Europe can testify, his deadly finishing is matched only by his elegant style.

Made club captain last summer after the departure of fellow Frenchman Patrick Vieira, ‘Titi’ has enjoyed yet another sensational season, even smashing the London club’s all-time scoring record held previously by Ian Wright (185 goals).

The boy from the Parisian suburb of Les Ulis first made a name for himself at Monaco where, under the watchful eye of his guru Arsene Wenger, he developed an array of skills that would propel him to the summit of his sport. Picked initially by Jacquet to play a bit-part role at France 98, Henry ended the tournament as his side’s top scorer with three goals to his name.

In 1999, he escaped from an inauspicious spell at Juventus, to whom he was sold by Monaco, by moving to Highbury, a switch that saw his career take on a whole new dimension. There, his old mentor Wenger converted him from a left winger into an out-and-out centre-forward. Revelling in his new role, Henry proceeded to play a key part in France’s UEFA Euro 2000 coronation by chipping in with three goals. The football world was witnessing the birth of a legend.

Finding form
The following season, Henry really hit top gear, finishing top scorer in a team that also included the Dutch maestro Dennis Bergkamp. But for the team as a whole, the campaign was marked by the dual disappointment of a cup final loss to Liverpool and elimination in the quarter-final of the UEFA Champions League by Valencia.

One year later, the English Premiership’s top scorer arrived in Asia for the FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan 2002. But after being knocked out in the group stage without scoring a single goal, France suddenly found that the dark days were upon them.

When they were also defeated in the quarter-final of Euro 2004 by future champions Greece, les Bleus were forced to acknowledge that an era had ended. Drafted in to oversee the reconstruction, Raymond Domenech was hit by a wave of temporary retirements that deprived him of the likes of Lilian Thuram, Claude Makelele and Zinedine Zidane. But the coach responded by appointing Henry as one of his generals, a move he would not regret. When France’s place in Germany came under threat during their FIFA World Cup preliminary campaign, Henry responded with a stunning strike against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin that got his country back on track for qualification (1-0).

Stung by les Bleus’ ignominious FIFA World Cup exit four years ago, Henry is more motivated than ever by the idea of silencing the sceptics who claim he is less effective at international level as he is for his club. Defenders of the world, watch out: Henry is likely to be at his devastating best in Germany this summer.

The thought of what Wayne Rooney might achieve at the FIFA World Cup™ is enough to whet the appetite of any England fan – without even getting to the other 22 members of Sven-Goran Eriksson’s squad.
Simply recalling how Rooney performed at the 2004 UEFA European Championship, his first major international tournament, should set English pulses racing. Forget stage fright, it was the Liverpudlian teenager who was terrifying the opposition.

Rooney struck twice against both Switzerland and Croatia to lead England to a quarter-final against Portugal where his early departure with a broken foot was a pivotal moment in a match Eriksson’s men eventually lost on penalties.

Now 20, he is widely considered the finest natural talent in English football since Paul Gascoigne but where Gazza was 22 when he made his international debut, Rooney – as his performances in Portugal showed – was already England’s most important player at 18. Just as he appears to do things at a different speed to everyone else on the football pitch, so his career has progressed on fast-play.

As a 14-year-old Rooney was starring for the U-19s at Everton, his boyhood club. Aged 16 he was in the Everton first team and signalled his arrival on the Premiership stage with an unforgettable first league goal against then champions Arsenal in October 2002. After taking the field as a late substitute he curled a spectacular last-minute strike over David Seaman to end Arsenal's 30-match unbeaten run.

The message was clear: with Rooney anything is possible. Just as defenders bounce off his stocky boxer's frame, so he sends records tumbling. He beat James Prinsep's 124-year record as England's youngest player when, aged 17 years and 111 days, he made his debut against Australia on 12 February 2003. Seven months later, he became England's youngest ever scorer when he struck the opening goal in a European Championship qualifying win in FYR Macedonia. He was 17 years and 317 days old.

The football pitch, in the words of Colin Harvey, his former youth coach at Everton, is Rooney’s ‘playground’. Although a striker, he does his best work from deep, using his strength and skill to run at defenders while his vision creates openings for others.

Michael Owen once described Rooney’s game as "running at people, playing in that hole, shooting from distance, passing the ball, bits of skill". In other words just about everything. Not surprising for someone known to excel in central defence during Young v Old games on the training ground – and who even enjoys trying his luck in goal.

After leaving Everton for Manchester United in August 2004, Rooney soon showed that he was cheap at the £27million United paid for him. He struck a remarkable hat-trick on his debut at Old Trafford against Fenerbahce in the UEFA Champions League and ended the 2004/05 season with 11 goals from 29 league appearances and the Young Player of the Year award.

He produced more of the same during the 2005/06 campaign, notably with his man-of-the-match display in the League Cup final against Wigan Athletic where his two goals helped United to a 4-0 triumph – and himself to the first winner’s medal of his career.

And although he did not net a single goal in England’s Germany 2006 qualifying campaign, the performance he gave in the friendly win over Argentina last November – a fearsome combination of raging bull and floating butterfly – underlines why England fans are expecting so much from him

I still back England to win the world cup. We have a team of players who play at the highest level. We have a good goalkeeper, a solid defence, a goalscoring midfield, although at the start strike will rely heavily on Crouch, as Owen isn't 100% and Rooney will be out for a few games. But once Rooneys back and Owens 100%...I'd like to see a defence that would stop them, and the midfield.

I know - go socceroos! Yeeha!
And England will not win the World Cup. Basically.....coz they dont have the flair. Winning should be done in style - and only south american and spain/portuguese teams are good at that. There are exceptions of course - Korea is pretty good.

Peace
