Manuel Neuer, Germany

Highly regarded as one of the world’s best goalkeepers, Germany’s Manuel Neuer defends the net as if his life’s on the line. Blending cat-like reflexes with excellent range and ball placement, Neuer is as exciting a keeper as there is in the world. Although he created concern for missing last Friday’s friendly match against Armenia, the 28-year-old is scheduled to be at the net in Germany’s opening match against Portugal on June 16. (Photo: Stuart Franklin/Bongarts/Getty Images)
