Edilson

Club: Flamengo
Position: Forward

Edilson has found his chances limited at the World Cup only coming into contention when one of the three Rs have found themselves on the sidelines.

When called on the 30-year-old Flamengo striker has shown his offensive ability.

Known as the "Little Devil", he has both the pace and the guile to cut through world-class defences.

But he also has a reputation for diving in and around the box.
