Michael Bradley, USA

Getting drawn into a rough Group G with Ghana, Portugal, and Germany, the United States has its work cut out for it. Heading into the Americans’ opening match with Ghana on June 16, midfielder Michael Bradley recently mentioned that the key will be not showing fear for the team that eliminated them from the past two World Cups. It’s one thing to talk, it’s another to act. If Bradley backs up his mouth with his feet, he will truly be one to watch. (Photo: Mark Runnacles/Getty Images)
