Teko Modise - South Africa
Whilst the host nations’ main hopes for this World Cup rely on Everton’s Steven Pienaar and West Ham’s Benni McCarthy, it may just be unknown Teko Modise who could prove to be the star.
The 27 year old currently plays in the South African for the Orlando Pirates but a good tournament could see him finally earn himself a move to England or Italy.
The winger burst onto the scene in 2007 for Bafana Bafana and has since become a key component for the side.
Modise has extremely good technique, a bag full of tricks, a great eye for a pass and good shooting ability as well (for a winger) and it is these attributes which has earned him honours such as South African Player Of The Year.
If South Africa are to progress to the 2nd round of the World Cup, Modise will play a key part.
