#5 Yoann Gourcuff (France)

At only 23, this French midfielder has already drawn comparisons to great Zinedine Zidane. Playing his club ball at French Ligue 1 Bordeaux, Gourcuff posesses the technical skills and intelligence to command the French team from the midfield. He'll look to team up with Franck Ribery and Nicolas Anelka to provide the offense. However, the French team needed a little hands on attention from Theirry Henry to avoid missing the WC all-together, and have looked dreadful in recent friendlies. Gourcuff's managment of the pace and flow of the game, and his ability to step up when needed will be extremely important in order reap the benefits of this talent laden French team. (Akon and David Guetta in the highlights video? I guess I was wrong about this Top 5 thing not involving music...)
