From Rooney to Ronaldinho, Kidzworld checks out some of the soccer superstars to watch at the FIFA World Cup of soccer in Germany.

FIFA World Cup Soccer Stars - Ronaldinho

RonaldinhoRonaldinho is considered the best player in the world and is expected to lead Brazil to their sixth world cup. The Brazilian superstar is known as much for his gap-toothed smile as he is for his magical ability around the goal. Ronaldinho will undoubtedly be both a fan favorite and a scoring sensation in Germany.

FIFA World Cup Soccer Stars - Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney You'd have a tough time finding anything more important to people in England right now than the condition of Wayne Rooney's metatarsal - that the bone he broke in his right foot. The leg injury will prevent Rooney from playing in England's opening games - but the gifted young English striker could be a huge factor in the knockout rounds of the tournament.

FIFA World Cup Soccer Stars - Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo With his fabulous footwork and good looks, Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal has become one of the most popular soccer players on the planet. Ronaldo broke out as a superstar when he helped Portugal advance to the finals at Euro 2004. If Ronaldo works his magic in Germany, Portugal could reach the semi-finals.

FIFA World Cup Soccer Stars - Lionel Messi

Lionel MessiArgentina is one of the favorites to win it all at the 2006 World Cup and one of their best is teenage superstar, Lionel Messi. His quickness and small size have earned him the nickname, El Pulga (The Flea) and he's sure to be a pest to opposing teams in Germany. Messi has a great touch around the goal and is incredibly poised for a player who just turned 18.

FIFA World Cup Soccer Stars - Luca Toni
Luca Toni With his excellent scoring ability and great ball control, Luca Toni will be the player to watch for Italy. Toni was the top scorer in European soccer in 2005-06 and has a shot at winning the Golden Boot, as the top goal scorer at the World Cup. A big tournament from Toni could return Italy to World Cup glory.

They're throwing each other in the air, performing possibly dangerous stunts, not even mentioning that they have to wear those skimpy outfits in freezing weather.  And also, my sister got a severe head injury and a sprained neck while doing a stunt. That's more injured than i've seen a basketball player get.
