9=. Mario Gomez – 86

Did FIFA make a mistake with their inclusion of Gomez, who only scored 11 goals last season at Bayern Munich and struggled to hold down a first team place?

Subsequently sold to Fiorentina, the German international is yet to find top form at the club after an injury – although he’s scored twice in three games to signal his intent in Serie ‘A’.

He’s certainly not a player to overlook in the latest instalment of the game, with some solid overall stats. 79 shooting, 79 pace, 72 dribbling, 84 heading, 60 passing, 48 defending.
