Pelé and Diego Maradona are vastly considered the greatest two footballers of the 20th century, and El Mundial was the tournament that essentially helped them build their legendary legacy.

Keeping in mind the likelihood of their national teams going far in the competition, and as a result, helping individual quality express itself, here are the top 10 players to look out for in the 2018 World Cup:

#10 - Timo Werner (Germany):

Chile v Germany: Final - FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017
Chile v Germany: Final - FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017

Timo Werner might only be 21-years old, but he has already proved his worth by guiding Germany's national team to Confederations Cup triumph in June. Perhaps, a sign of what could happen next year, as the Germans make their comeback to Russian capital Moscow, for the World Cup this time.

Werner will be looking to challenge for another Golden Boot award, and who can blame him for being ambitious, when he possesses such fascinating finishing skills and when he is the focal point of Germany's attack.

They are known to dominate games and to never leave their main striker short of clear-cut goal-scoring chances. Werner has already scored 5 Bundesliga goals in 6 appearances this season.
