1 SON HEUNG MIN
(SOUTH KOREA, 21, FW, BAYER LEVERKUSEN)
Earlier this month, Bayer Leverkusen's Son Heung Min became the first South Korean to score a hat-trick in one of the world's top leagues in the 5-3 victory over Hamburg.
However, it was at Hamburg that Son (right) really began to shine, establishing himself in the first team at the age of 17 during the 2010-11 campaign. In the same season, he also made his international debut.
Since joining Leverkusen, he has gone from strength to strength.
A pacey, two-footed forward, Son is happy playing anywhere across the forward line and is a lethal finisher.
If he hits the ground running in Brazil, the Taeguk Warriors could go far.
2 PAUL POGBA
(France, 20, MF, Juventus)
While Verratti is an Italian midfielder making giants strides in France, Pogba is the polar opposite - a multi-talented Frenchman who's doing the business for Serie A champions Juventus.
Pogba (right) set the tone for what could be an entertaining international career on his second appearance for Les Bleus, producing an all-star performance against Spain before being dismissed.
The big mystery surrounding Pogba is why he wasn't given a chance to cement his position at Manchester United. Ahead of the 2011-12 season, then United boss Sir Alex Ferguson talked about giving him opportunities. That season, Pogba played only 67 minutes in the Premier League.
