No. 9 Arjen Robben, Bayern Munich/Netherlands

Why he's ranked: Robben has long been something of a divisive figure for his friends and foes, with the accusations that he falls over a little too easily and can be selfish on the pitch compensated by his sublime match-winning qualities and dynamic turn of pace. Yet Dutch coach Louis van Gaal appreciates his abilities and will build his attacking threat around this former Chelsea and Real Madrid star.

Arjen Robben helped lead Bayern Munich to the Bundesliga title. Now he will look to spearhead the Dutch attack.

Key Stat: Known as one of the best left-footed shooters in the world. Robben has 34 left-footed goals in Bundesliga play over the past four seasons, more than any other player. (as of 4/30/14).

What the experts say: "Robben will bring the ball to the middle and shoot with his left foot. Everyone knows that, but few players are able avoid his traditional and decisive move." - Leonardo Bertozzi, ESPN Brasil
