#WorldCupRank: No. 11 Sergio Aguero

« Previous: No. 12, Thiago Silva | Next: No. 10, Reveals 6/7 »

No. 11 Sergio Aguero, Manchester City/Argentina

Why he's ranked: This Manchester City striker is regarded by many observers as the best goal poacher in the English Premier League, and after a season disrupted by injuries at club level, Aguero is heading to the World Cup fresh and eager to shine. Quick off the mark, a dynamic finisher and devoted to the game, this little penalty box predator is a striker that has it all.

Sergio Aguero helped Manchester City win the English Premier League title. Now his sights are on the World Cup.

Key stat: Best goal per minute ratio in the Premier League this past season (minimum 10 games played). That's a goal every 94 minutes.

What the experts say: "[He is] short but extremely skillful, Aguero reminds fans of other Argentine legends, like Maradona, thanks to his physicality and comfort with the ball at his feet." - Gustavo Hofman, ESPN Brasil

"[He is] a fast, excellent finisher, and with Messi in his team, Aguero is a candidate for the Golden Boot." - Paulo Cobos, ESPN Brasil

"When the ball breaks to Aguero in his favoured position on the right-hand edge of the opponents' box, there is usually only one end result. He is the Premier League's finest finisher and up there with the world's best. Gary Neville has compared his range of finishing to Romario. Should he stay fit, he and close friend Lionel Messi can make hay in Brazil." - John Brewin

"He is in the Top 5 list of players who can turn around a game by themselves. [He is] able to make the best split-second decision in the box and get past the strongest defence with tremendous leg power. If there were no Lionel Messi in this world, Argentina would still have an ace. Add Higuain and Di Maria to the attacking equation, and the reasons are clear why Argentina are one of the favorites to run away with the Cup." - Roberto Martinez, ESPN Argentina
