Jorge Costa
Club:Charlton Athletic
Position:Defender

Jorge Costa has been arguably one of the revelations of the latter part of the season since moving to London and Premiership side Charlton Athletic.

There he has helped the club surpass their league expectations and has gone from a player battling to get into Portugal's World Cup squad to a favourite to start for the side.

Costa moved to the capital in a bid to prove his ability after falling out with the FC Porto coaching staff.

His strength, both in the tackle and on the ball, plus his ability to adapt quickly to Premiership football should see him shine at the World Cup.
