#4 Andres Iniesta (Spain)

On a supremely talented Spanish team, you would be hard pressed to find a stand-out player. But Andres Iniesta has emerged as Spain's leader and arguably best player. While Iniesta's stats won't raise any eyebrows, (only one goal for Barcelona this past year) it's the intangibles and game sense that make Iniesta so good. Wayne Rooney called Iniesta the best player in the world following the 2009 Champions League final. Iniesta does everything on the pitch, defense, offense, and he is perfectly content being two passes away from a goal. It's this kind of unselfish play which will benefit talented Spanish strikers Fernando Torres and David Villa. If Iniesta plays the way he is capable, Spain look to be the overwhelming favorites to take home the Cup.
