7. Didier Drogba

Akinfenwa has stunning physique.

3. Julio Baptista

He was a defensive midfielder in the early stages of his career, because his power meant he was simply too good at disrupting opponents' attacks.

His power applies to everything he does, whether it be running, jumping or striking a ball.
