When Lionel Messi won the best player of the tournament award for the World Cup I thought it was bullshit.
He essentially did not do much in the important matches for Argentina. James Rodriguez had six goals and carried his Colombian team. He also had a load of assists. The award is obviously geared towards a player who played in the semi finals. But even if that was the case you could argue Thomas Muller of Germany deserved it more for Messi.
More proof that Messi is over rated. Seems like he won the award before the tournament started with his okay play and Argentina’s easy schedule.
I’m not sure what the age limit for “best young player is” but if it’s under 25 James Rodriguez definitely deserved it over freaking Paul Pogba. If it’s under 23 then I am mistaken. Paul Pogba played not bad. I thought the real robbery was Messi over James.
