Yaya Toure (Ivory Coast)

It’s been a good year for Yaya Toure. He won the African Footballer of the Year award, his team, Manchester City, won the English Premier League, and he was the third top scorer for the entire league with 20 goals. What he would need to make it a perfect year is if this, his third World Cup, resulted in the trophy. The 31-year-old has also played for FC Barcelona, Monaco and Olympiakos and is considered one of the top midfield players in soccer today because his defensive work is as on point as his ability to score. (Photo: Alex Livesey/Getty Images)
