We should devote a thread to the rising stars appearing in the upcoming World Cup.
Other than the obvious Lionel Messi, Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo, Xavi etc of course, this thread should be for the relatively unknown stars.
From Uruguay there's Luis Suarez playing at Ajax who might have a good run in this tournament playing up front with Diego Forlan
For Greece two young players are probably going to be the upcoming stars. Sotiris Ninis of Panathinaikos and Sokratis Papastathopoulos of Genoa, both have many European teams' eyes on them, and this tournament might be their chance for a big transfer.
Alexis Sanchez of Chile and Udinese is an amazing player and this tournament might lure him away from Friuli if he stands up to his potential.
