#WorldCupRank: No. 33 Marco Reus

« Previous: No. 34, Toni Kroos | Next: No. 32, Luka Modric »

No. 33 Marco Reus, Borussia Dortmund/Germany

Why he's ranked: This dynamic forward isn't nicknamed "Rolls Reus" for nothing. He's a man loaded with potential to make his mark at Brazil 2014. Reus is quick, athletic, decisive and capable of playing a variety of attacking positions; a less-than-stellar season for Borussia Dortmund shouldn't impact his potential at the World Cup. His future in Dortmund has been the subject of much discussion in recent months, but that debate can be put on hold for now.

Reus is one of many talented goalscorers that German manager Joachim Low has at his disposal.

Key stat: Most goals by a midfielder in Bundesliga over past three seasons (48). Most chances created in Bundesliga over past three seasons (220).

What the experts say: "Skilled, technical and quick, he is one of the many quality options in a great German team." - Gian Oddi, ESPN Brazil
