Gerrard from what he did with Liverpool and to the Champions League...so maybe not win, but be in top 3 Shevchenko from how he brought Ukraine into their first World Cup Ronaldinho cause he helped Barca win after a long drought! and he did great in the Confederations Cup (so did Adriano, but don't like him that much) Zidane from what he did in helping France regain qualification in the World Cup!
