Guillermo Ochoa (Mexico)

Few had heard of Francisco Guillermo Ochoa when he made debut for Mexican club America. He was a key figure in America’s dominance of the domestic scene in 2005. The cool-headed shot-stopper belied his age with a flawless season, consolidating his position among the country’s finest keepers and staking a compelling claim to a national-team call-up.

An outstanding keeper and a hero to millions, although his biggest gift is an ability to stay calm in the most nerve-wracking

of situations, he has other strings to his bow, not least his sensational reflexes.
