My Dream Team Of Potential For Brazil 2014

Unread post by zeru » 30 Dec 2013 20:04

Chief writer Ed Dove picks an African dream team of potential 2014 World Cup stars without any Ghanaian.
Five African teams will represent the continent in Brazil at the 2014 World Cup next summer.
Among these sides are a number of players capable of stealing the show; the draw has given several nations a realistic chance of progressing to the knock-out rounds, perhaps one or two of these figures will be contesting the business end of the world’s greatest tournament.
Goalkeeper: Vincent Enyeama


Vincent Enyeama is continuing a fine tradition of African goalkeepers who prove the sceptics wrong.
The supposed lineage of hapless sub-Saharan stoppers has existed for decades, but the likes of Enyeama, Kossi Agassa and recently, Charles Itandje, are contributing to a change in perception.
Enyeama is the pick of the bunch. The Nigerian ‘keeper delivered a series of masterful performances in South Africa to bring the Cup of Nations title home. As well as being a study barrier, he also proved himself to be a leader and a fine organiser.
More recently, his form for Lille has been exceptional, particularly considering he spent last term on loan. Unfortunately, he failed to break Gaetan Huard’s record for consecutive Ligue 1 clean sheets, but his 11-match run without conceding has reminded the world of his enduring class.
Right-Back: Serge Aurier
Having watched Serge Aurier star for Toulouse in the French top flight, it is no wonder Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been keeping tabs on the right-back according to the Daily Express’ James Dickenson. Aurier could well emerge as the natural successor to Bakary Sagna.
At international level, he has already usurped one former Arsenal star.
In taking over from Emmanuel Eboue, Aurier became the first of the new crop of Elephants players to cement a regular starting berth. The Galatasaray man, on the other hand, became the first of the Golden Generation to fall.

Centre-Back: Joel Matip
Cameroonian defender Joel Matip surely surely every quality that is desired in a modern centre-back.
At German side Schalke, he has demonstrated both the impressive build and strength needed to nullify threats in this position; however, he has also looked comfortable on the ball, composed in possession and with enough vision to begin moves from the heart of the defence.
He is a stylish player and has occasionally looked the part in the Bundesliga.
Occasionally, however, is perhaps the operative work. As is often the case with many young players, Matip also has his dark days.
