2. Wayne Rooney
The Manchester United striker is widely considered as England's best player at the moment and will be crucial when the Three Lions go to Brazil for the World Cup next summer.
His industry, goalscoring and general play are just as important for United who he joined for £25.6 million in 2004.
Since then, the Red Devils have won the Premier League five times as well as bringing home the Champions League in 2008.
In Rooney's period at the club he has arguably been their most important player together with Cristiano Ronaldo.
