Winners – Joel Campbell
Costa Rica have been one of the biggest surprises of the World Cup so far, with their rigorously organised five-man defence, and their counter-attacking style having won a fair few admirers. There have been no members of the squad receiving more praise than Arsenal’s Joel Campbell.
The 22-year-old could currently be in the running for the best young player of the tournament, with his match-winning display against Uruguay being his highlight of the tournament so far. Off the back of a good Champions League campaign with Olympiakos, and a successful World Cup with his underdog nation, Campbell will head to Arsenal for his first pre-season campaign with them since being signed in 2011. His reputation has rapidly risen.
