9: Robin van Persie | Holland

Another side with no end of talent and flair, Van Persie is not only the spearhead to Holland's attack, but also the man who they turn to when they need a boost.

The United forward has risen to prominence over the last few seasons to cement his place as one of the world's top strikers, and Holland rely on his prowess and natural ability to finish off the moves that Arjen Robben and co. orchestrate.

Van Persie is a man who more often than not replicates his lethal club form for his national team, and they'll rely on him heavily at next year's World Cup.
