Gervinho failed to fire in two underwhelming seasons at Arsenal but the Ivory Coast winger is flying high with AS Roma and targeting a dramatic impact at this summer's World Cup
Here we look at how Gervinho has recaptured his best form...
John Carew tells Sky Sports why he loves the World Cup.
The Sky Sports Scout has been keeping an eye on rising talent for several seasons, and has already found many players who have gone on to become big hits.
This will be no different at the World Cup and here, in association with Wyscout, the Scout looks at USA's DeAndre Yedlin.
Ones to watch
No.28 - Yaya Toure
The powerful midfielder was in imperious form for Manchester City this season, plundering goals aplenty and driving at the heart of rival defences to devastating effect. He will fancy his chances of guiding Ivory Coast out of an encouraging group, at least.
Who to follow
No.28 - @garyalsmith
Gary Smith is an African football expert whose knowledge and tweets should prove invaluable when the World Cup rolls around. He already has his finger on the pulse with the squads as they are announced and this will also be the case come kick-off in Brazil.
World Cup greats
No.28 - Rivaldo
The Brazilian playmaker's theatrics against Turkey in 2002 are perhaps the overriding memory of his World Cup contributions. But it should not be forgotten he also hit the headlines for dazzling displays in 1998 and 2002, winning in Japan.
