Image 8 of 10


SAMUEL ETO’O (Cameroon): Not as fast as he used to be, but still a goalkeeper’s nightmare. His level of controlled aggression is unmatched and when he gets that look in his eye, the ball is not long for the back of the net. Expect to see him in the highlight reels. He appeared in the World Cup in 1998 and 2002, but missed 2006 when Cameroon failed to qualify. He was voted Footballer of the Year three times. He plays professionally for Inter Milan and continues to be one of the world’s highest paid stars. Eto'o is featured here on the cover of ESPN The Magazine's 2010 World Cup Preview issue.
