This German maestro was a surprise inclusion in Loew’s 2010 World Cup Squad, after an injury to then captain Michael Ballack. He went on to shine in the games and soon shot to fame with his transfer to Real Madrid. Ozil, who had a good World Cup debut in 2010, has given a modest performance in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Though his performances haven't been great so far, he is a key player to the team as he is a highly creative play-maker, who can create numerous goal scoring opportunities for the striker.
