5. Stephan El Shaarawy

AC Milan's 20-year-old forward Stephan El Shaarawy has proven himself to be a rising star of the future this season. With intoxicating performances, this youngster has set the bar high for the remainder of his career.

Currently El Shaarawy resides in joint third place for the golden boot award in Italy this season - he is a fast paced, lethal finisher with an unselfish attitude.

His club form would suggest that he has the potential to light the world on fire however, he has struggled to really perform on the international stage, scoring only one goal in six appearances for Italy.

Come Brazil, he will hope to rectify this problem.
