10: Vincent Kompany | Belgium

Belgium now have a large pool of quality from which to draw from, but it's undoubtedly their redoubtable captain who is their most important individual.

As is the case with Manchester City, Kompany is a rock at the back for them and dictates the defensive side of his national team to dominating effect.

They may have an abundance of flair going forward, but it's Kompany they miss the most when he's not available.
