    Well from Chile so far (knock on wood) no one is injured. Australia has their star injured, which now drops their chances even more. I would love to classify with Australia ehehhe, but Australia gets Brazil second round.

    Sad about his injury, but he's not a top player.

    And them compared to Falcao is a joke. So either this thread is about high profile players on high profile teams or it's about players that would have made their national team. You put a nobody like Vela or Oviedo in this thread then to me its open to any NT player who is set to miss the World Cup. Oviedo was on Copenhagen and now on *drumroll* mighty Everton. Vela plays for Sociedade not exactly top of anything.

    Does Januzaj belong in here? Arguably he's a high profile player on a high profile team ... at least if you feel his current club demands that kind of respect.

    I'm not the one to ask. I have no clue who this thread is for after Oviedo was put in.

    Sorry that I didn't explain my point, but when the thread op says top players I think he means in terms of the National team. Looking at all the Nigerian Forwards in Europe (and even the Nigerian League) no one can say with a straight face that Dike (who is not even a regular for Toronto Fc) is a top player.

    Are you sure you've been paying attention to what Vela has done this season in La Liga? Dude is the best performing Mexican player in Europe this season. The same Real Sociedad that was on top of Barcelona just last week? :ROFLMAO:

    The same Everton that are 6th in the PL?
