Image 3 of 10


WAYNE ROONEY (England): Rooney is the key to the Brits winning the World Cup, which has been predicted by analysts at JP Morgan. The hot-tempered striker will need to look at the tattoo on his forearm – which reads “Just Enough Education to Perform” – to remember to keep his cool and stay in the game. Rooney twisted his ankle in the Champions League quarterfinal on March 30, but he’s fit to play in the World Cup. He plays professionally for Manchester United and will be key to the Three Lions’ chances of advancing to the latter stages of the tournament. Rooney is seen here reacting in a goal during a match against Japan in Graz, Austria, on May 30.
