3. Fernando Torres ST Atletico Madrid
14. Cristian Lara AM LDU Quito
The kid has been a phenom since his mid-teens, and though his game has plateaued, his hair-styling has not. He obviously emulates some of the greats, including David Beckham, but has managed to carve out his own niche with some over-the-top fashion - including one of my favorites hairdo pictures of all time, the shaved mullet. He's so young it's hard not to think of him as a hairstyling legend in the wings.......
I say in 8-10 years this award is his to lose. He's headed for the Pantheon of Greats.
One of the guys who sticks out in my mind from WC 2006. He's that pint-sized guy who came on as a substitute for Ecuador and just ran wild all over defenses. Maybe it's because he's an alien? Doesn't he remind of ET? As for the hair, there's nothing like a shaved side and mop on top. It's a classic.
It's going to take a serious upset to be FT, but Lara has some understated South American ridiculousness.
