World Cup Cartoon Competition!

OK, admittedly I'm not the biggest fan of football so this is my one concession to the bloody World Cup that is dominating the the airwaves at the moment. Please note that they are only here because they are excellent cartoons and it has nothing to do with football!
All seven were created as free postcards by Simon Evans for the UK advertising agency, 
Boomerang Media.
They kind of remind me of Jacques Tardi's work, which is no bad thing!
 Personally, the sooner England gets knocked out and those bloody stupid flags disappear and we can all return back to normal, the better!
Now, if you can name all the players, and the country they play for, I'll send you some non-football related goodies. Simply send your answers in the format below:
Warrior = (full name, country team)
Magician = 
Genius =
L'enchanteur = 
Trickster = 
Saviour = 
Assassin = 

Don't forget your name, and email address. First person to post all the correct answers in the comments section wins!

Genius = Lionel Messi, Argentina
L'enchanteur = Franck Ribery, France
Trickster = Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal
Saviour = Wayne Rooney, England (Ingerland)
Assassin = Fernando Torres, Spain

Do I win? :D

Well done, Brad. You obviously have far too much time on your hands and you are one of those rare breeds that is both a football and comics fan. I'll stick a stack of goodies in the post to you at the end of the week!

Tim, for someone who rightly detests the World Cup and its domination of the airwaves, you do realize that by promoting this kind of contest you are only encouraging more of the wretched footie mania? I think to make up for this lapse you should immediately run a similar competition featuring Formula 1 drivers. (Plus - entirely coincidentally - I might have a chance at that one...) Alan

I would run an F1 competition if anyone does a series of caricatures of them!
