Complex says: Lugano's a bit of an old-stager in terms of this list, and while Forlan and Suarez have taken the headlines for goals, Lugano's performances in defense have been just as important. A robust and powerful leader, Lugano missed the semi-final against Holland with injury. Epitomizing the rugged Uruguay of old, the captain helped ensure his team hold the opposition scoreless in the group stages. A late developer at club level, he's now employing his experience to maximum effect.
Team that should buy him: His never-say-die attitude and well-timed tackling could make him a hit in both England and Italy. If Manchester United were to lose Nemanja Vidic to a Spanish side, they could do worse then look to Lugano as a replacement.
