2. Manuel Neuer (Germany)
Germany has a history of producing world class goalkeepers. Having been served by some great keepers such as Oliver Kahn and Jens Lehman, the German team once again has the privilege of having Manuel Neuer in their lineup. The 28 year old Bayern Munich keeper has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the World. An incredible shot-stopper, commanding presence and good with his feet, Neuer is the total package. Germany are being considered by many as one of the favorites to win the 2014 World Cup and Neuer will have a big part to play if they are to realize their dream of a World Cup victory.
