1. Lionel Messi - Might be the best player in planet at the moment. Under-performed by his standard in his previous two World Cups and even confessed by himself. Messi is out to prove few points in this World Cup.

  1. 1. I dont agree with this - "Messi might be the best player in planet at the moment." Best in what just few dribling skills. But look at Cristiano Ronaldo man, He's a gifted footballer and the most complete player in the history of football. He doesn't play for a big footballing country like Argentina (reason behind Messi's success). He score more goals than Messi without having a support of classy midfielders like Iniesta or Xavi. He can single handedly win match for his team which Messi cant. He hit headers, bicycle kicks, free kick, has speed, brilliant dribbling skills and what does Messi have? just dribbling skills.
    2. Xabi Alonso, Edan Hazard has made to the list but where's Mesut Ozil? Ok if he's not in his best form off late but he's in good form to be frank. And he's a big match player and amongst the most fearest midfielder at present in world football. Myself a Real Madrid supporter knows the importance of Ozil (ex-madrid player) in the side.

  2. Diego Castillo He is regarded by several analysts as one of the world's top attackers at the moment. He is seen by many as being on the same wavelength as CR7 and Messi. Can Costa lead Spain to their second straight victory in Brazil? plays for Spain and Atletico Madrid.Keep up the fantastic work!
