Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois | Belgium (Chelsea)
Thibaut Courtois will go into the 2014 World Cup finals off the back of another incredible season with Atletico Madrid. He could even fly to Brazil as a La Liga champion.
Before he returns to parent club Chelsea, though, the brilliant 21-year-old will be out to show the world that he is the best young goalkeeper on the planet.
Belgium coach Marc Wilmots will hand Courtois the No. 1 jersey - over Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet - and the youngster has a good chance of keeping clean sheets against the Algeria, Russia and South Korea in the group stages.
He should then have the opportunity to really shine in the knockout rounds.
