#1 Christiano Ronaldo (Portugal)
Without a doubt, the most exciting player in the world to watch. Ronaldo's premiere combination of speed, agility, and technical ability make him a threat to score every time he touches the ball. It's no secret that Ronaldo has thrived for both Manchester United and now Real Madrid, but he has not carried this form over to the national time. With Portugal playing in a group with Brazil, North Korea, and Ivory Coast, Ronaldo will need to come to play every game. He seems to have matured since Portugal's run to the semi-finals in 06, and the team is decidedly his to run. However Portugal plays, millions of people will be holding their breath every time number 17 touches the ball.
