Marko Marin (firo)
Marko Marin is a nightmare for his opponents. He is small, quick, and has great technique. Because of this many defenders find him a tricky customer once he has the ball in his possession. Marin creates dangerous situations from set-pieces and delivers plenty of of assists. He can play as a playmaker, winger and striker as well. This versatility makes him a valuable player for club and country. 

The 20-year-old’s downfall is his lack of physical strength, since he goes to ground too easily in challenges with defenders. This could be the main reason that Marin won’t be in the starting XI at the World Cup. Nevertheless he has a bright future ahead of him, since his skills are well refined. Clubs like Ajax Amsterdam and AC Milan have already confessed their interest in his services and in the long-term he could be an important member of the German national team as well.
