The 10 Best World Cup Players Of 2014

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The 2014 World Cup is in full swing in Brazil this month with the top 32 national futbol clubs competing for the chance to be named the best national team in the world.

The World Cup is the world's most popular sporting event featuring stars from all over the globe. Nationalism and pride is never higher than when a country's team is competing on the world stage as player's leave their club teams for the summer to come together to represent their native countries.

This year's tournament has already seen a couple of shockers with defending champion Spain being ousted after its first two matches and the U.S. having a chance to advance past the group stages after upsetting Ghana earlier this week. 

The World Cup is an opportunity to see the best players in the world competing on a world stage, these are the 10 best footballers in this year's tournament...

#10 - Luis Suarez

National Team: Uruguay

Club Team: Liverpool

2013-2014 Club Stats: 31 Goals in 33 Apps

National Team Stats: 41 Goals in 78 Apps

Uruguay's 27 year old forward is Uruguay's all-time leader in goals scored with 40 in 78 appearances. Suarez goal scoring ability stems from his ability to maneuver in tight spaces. His powerful shot makes him a danger from almost anywhere on the offensive side of the pitch. Despite all of his talents, he is also a very polarizing figure after having admitted to taking dives, biting opposing players and handballing a goal on purpose during the 2010 World Cup.
