Yaya Toure, Ivory Coast

All Yaya Toure did with Manchester City this past season is net 21 goals in 43 games, leading the squad to the English Premier League championship. A winner of three consecutive African Footballer of the Year awards, Toure is more than out of the shadow of fellow countryman and Ivory Coast soccer legend Didier Drogba. It’s his time. (Photo: Mike Hewitt/Getty Images)
