Sergio Aguero (Argentina and Manchester City)

The Manchester City man gives plenty of height and weight to most other strikers, but he deserves to be recognized for his many other qualities, not the least of which is a surprising analogy as Romario. And Aguero, the latest in a string of Argentine players to be dubbed “the new Maradona,” has scored in Spain and England as nothing more than child’s play. El Kun got his nickname due to the Japanese anime character of the same name and similar hair. He beat Atletico Madrid and moved to City in the summer of 2011, where he scored the winning goal against QPR to book the title in 2012.
