Digging deeper and burrowing beyond the faces of world football's most established players - the ones who are grabbing the plaudits and newspaper back pages -, which players could see themself elevated up a level due to their eye catching World Cup performances? Here are my five picks:
1. Juan Cuadrado (Colombia)
What's more impressive; out-muscling Yaya Toure, or assisting four World Cup goals and even scoring one yourself? Either way, both are valid enough reasons to warrant interest from Europe's biggest clubs, and Cuadrado is receiving just that.
Cuadrado, who is a winger by trade, had a major role in his side's group stage domination and has been constantly been at the heart of his side's offensive play. The 26-year old Fiorentina attacker creates a lot, and combined with his ability to pick a pass or fizz in a cross, he's has proved himself to be a devastating asset for the South American side over the past two weeks. And, unsuprisingly, his performances have attracted attention from all of Europe's top sides.
