#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.
