This is a list composed of players that haven’t really garnered a great deal of fuss in the build-up to this tournament but could well prove decisive in this tournament for their country. Some you may have heard of, and some maybe new to you.
Alexis Rolin – Uruguay
Rolin should play at the heart of the Uruguayan defence alongside Liverpool’s Coates. The left-footed centre-back is a powerhouse – explosive off the mark, composed and fearless in his tackles. He comes into the tournament after a strong season with Nacional in the domestic Uruguayan league. His strong performances in this season’s Copa Libertadores also attracted strong interest from both Roma and Inter Milan. This tournament is the perfect opportunity for him to showcase his ability to the world and do not be surprised to see him playing for a major club very soon.
