23Angel di Maria

I know it is something that shouldn't be analyzed, but hadn't he got injured, the final would have had a different ending. Well, I should also consider Marco Reus' injury as well, but anyway, on the match against Switzerland he was excellent. He was also good against Belgium, until he had to leave. - keyson

Most Underrated player he achieved many for his team.. - paasadani

25Alexis SanchezAlexis Alejandro Sánchez Sánchez, known as Alexis Sánchez or simply Alexis, is a Chilean professional footballer who plays as a forward for English club Arsenal and the Chilean national team.

He has a funny name, but Don't let him fool you. If your defense isn't doing its job, him or Vidal can score in two seconds flat.

They were doing really good against Brazil he scored the first goal then cam arturo vidal the done peno's I feel bad for him he hit the crossbar just after it would have been a goal and it hit the crossbar.

29David VillaDavid Villa Sánchez is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a striker and also serves as captain for New York City FC in Major League Soccer.

David Villa was a testament to true footballing. His backheel flick into the goal against Australia, and him kissing the Spanish badge showed his dedication and appreciation for the sport

32Vincent Enyeama

Enyeama was really good. Nigeria would have not won a game if it weren't for him.

33Sokratis Papastathopoulos

One of the best defenders of the tournament

34David Luiz

David Luiz was amazing in the World Cup, sure, when you think of defenders, you think of Thiago Silva, or Sergio Ramos, but David Luiz topped all the defenders in the 2014 World Cup!

His game style is anything but a defender. I believe he might do a lot better as a midfielder. - keyson

One good goal against Colombia, but he killed Brazil vs Germany when Silva was gone.
