Central midfield: Andres Iniesta

Andres Iniesta is the ultimate big-game player. In the most important matches for Barcelona and Spain, the pale-faced playmaker has so often scored decisive goals or contributed invaluable assists.

One of the most naturally-gifted footballers of his generation, the 29-year-old could eventually be widely remembered as the best midfielder of all time if he adds a few more winners' medals to his collection between now and the day he hangs up his boots.
