Greatest Players of the 2014 FIFA World CupAlexandr
The Top Ten
The top ten best players of THE WORLD CUP, What hell is Cristiano Ronaldo doing here? James Rodriguez really deserve stay in #1
James Rodriguez just turned 23 and he already earned the Golden Boot for the six goals he made for Columbia. David Beckham himself said he was impressed by James and he has the qualities to be one of the best players in the future. Cristiano Ronaldo? Seriously? Portugal didn't even get to the Round of 16 and he only scored one lucky goal.
Young player with a bright future. His passion for the game is electrifying. He definitively gave his all at the World Cup and did an outstanding job.
By the way it is Colombia not Columbia.
James played so good! Excellent passes and goals from James Rodriguez - QNUZV 49 Comments
Lionel Mess I got that award for a reason! He scored the game winning goal against Iran in stoppage time! And the goal off the post against Bosnia Herzegovina! And the assist against Switzerland! He can dribble through players like they're nothing! He also helped win the shootout against Netherlands! Also he scored a penalty kick from outside the box against Nigeria.
I am so glad Messi is Argentinian. He keeps leaving us such wonderful goals! Thanks to him we passed the group zone, and the match against Switzerland. He collaborated as well later with great passes in general, though his fatigue and effort was evident. He showed he is still the best player of the world with the support of a team reaching the final match. The reason why he didn't do more is because he is human. Thanks for everything Lionel Messi! - keyson
Incredible skills. Extremely fast. Most importantly, NOT A DIVER! Best player in the world!
Messi played good, but no so good as James. He has some excellent driblings and goals. - QNUZV 79 Comments
Thomas muller should be 2 or 3 because he is better than Cristano Ronaldo and James rodriguez because he made 3 goals on Portugal and he had won the golden boot. James won the golden boot this year.
With 5 goals he is beast and as they won
Do you know the you in miller if you make it a uppercase it looks like a smiley face Ü
He can smell the ballV 32 Comments
Robben was by far the best player on this World Cup. His dribbles and creativity were just amazing. Without him Holland wouldn't have made it past the group stage.
He was by far the best player on this World Cup. His dribbles were just incredible and without him Holland wouldn't have made it past the group stage.
Every player is afraid of him. didn't YOU GUYS SEE THE WORLD CUP? In almost every match all the defensors were on him. they were afraid cause once he has the ball, he can make miracles. he has technique, he is fast and he has willpower.
For example, the match with Argentina. Argentina was just defending. wasnt looking for that goal. half of the players where on Robbens side. They knew pretty good that Robben is one of the most dangerous players. Argentina blocked Robben. they went on penalties. they won. Because the key of holland is Arjen Robben. didn't won cup, but Arjen Robben was for me the most outstanding player in this world cup.
I am so amazed how underrated this player is.V 32 Comments
Without him Brazil trembled. Neymar is the best palyer for Brazil, his injury is unfortunate! - paasadani
Neymar is my favorite player. I even have him on my wall paper he is so awesome. he is the soccer player I admire. He inspired me to play soccer. whenever I play soccer people always make fun of me or say I suck or make me go on another team just because I'm white and they think I don't know anything about soccer, but I keep playing and ignore them. that is why I am always defense, I make them surprised and juke them, steal the ball from them and score on them. And Neymar is who got me better.
Backbone of Brasilian team in 2014 World cup... one of the youngest player, skilled and powerhouse of hope and faith. Great Neymar.
Neymar rulesV 34 Comments
The best player and the Golden Glove winner... and beside him was Lionel Messi, many claiming to be football fans but didn't even see the brilliance and genius he has provided in the pitch. Yeah sure Tim Howard and Guillermo Ochoa did their job, ONCE. None were as consistent as him, seeing him in 7th makes me sick...
Neuer should be in the top 5 because he was the best goalie keeper in the 2014 FIFA world cup he got the golden glove award and did a lot of saves he was one of them to make Germany in the finals congrats neuer!
Golden glove winner. Why wasn't he even on this list?
Manuel Neuer is GOAT for goalies.V 8 Comments
He could have made his country won the world cup, if he wasn't injured. I love his superman header against Spain. - Dirty_Johnny
Seriously!? #7!? He deserves to be #1! Sure, James was awesome, but van Persie was better! Without him, The Netherlands would have no attack except for Robben, therefore, Arjen would have to do all the offensive work
Too bad the Netherlands lost, van persie is the best football player ever
That was an amazing header vs Spain! Casillas didn't see it coming!V 14 Comments
Yeah Agree I mean come on 16 saves against Belgium!
Even though the the US offense could not deliver, Tim Howard had the single most impressive game/effort of the world cup. He deserves to be a new American hero.
Even though my favorite team is not his, he is a true hero.
Howard sucks any team that allows 16 shots on goal sucks Belgium deserved that win go eden hazaesV 9 Comments
This is supposed to be about the World Cup. Ronaldo couldn't lead his team through the group stages and doesn't deserve to be in the top 30, no less 3
How can I vote him down the list? - anthonyw
What happened to Ronaldo, like he is supposed to lead the team he has only scored one goal he should have made Portugal to win the 2014 FIFA world cup Brazil and 2010 FIFA world cup south affria, In the 2018 FIFA world cup Russia if Ronaldo is qualified that Ronaldo will be better and that the scores more goals, the is very good in real madrid he scores a lot of goals there put not in the world cup
? Really?V 47 Comments
He is 36 yrs old still he plays pretty well.. Scores a goal against Brazil and has 16 overall world cup goals. He is the legend. - paasadani
Now holds the record for most goals in world cup history. Germany couldn't of won without him.
Holds the record of goals scored in three world cups
He is a legend.. A much better sportsman than RonaldoV 1 Comment
He made the last goal in the 2014 FIFA world cup. He had won a award for making the last goal. He the man. He good boy he should be 6 or 5. He has good tricks.
Scores the golden goal in the extra time for Germany to raise the World Cup. Unforgettable! - paasadani
He is the man of Germany cause he made a goal on Argentina after extra time
That was a rad ( yes I just sed rad get over it) goal! He got the ball past Romero! I will never forget Gotzes reaction to his GWGV 12 Comments
He did some incredible blocks against Brazil
Brazil did not deserve to win when Mexico played them. Brazil had the referees on they're side the whole time - FrankP
Rising star. May be the best after Casillas! - paasadani
Ochoa is the wall of MexicoV 3 Comments
Versatile, and with a team-first mentality. Epitomizes the reigning champions, and retired a legend. - KnutHudson
Led his team to victory
His sliding was good
He is good and will always be better than james rodriguez. James is a child for him
All hail King Benzema! He scored lots, France would've lost everything without him and Nasri. Lloris sucks.
He is Something Else! - AllAboutSoccer

Most consistent solid performer the World Cup has seen. Battered and bruised but still have 100% in every tackle.
He gave everything he had until he got empty. He is a hero. - keyson
Garay should be here instead, great CB
He was a lone warrior for his team Australia. If his team was good Cahill would have made the best out of it
Almost by far best goal of the world cup.
I like Tim Cahill because he's on New York Red Bulls.
Total stud. Almost took the Netherlands on his own.V 3 Comments
The best goalkeeper of the cup. All those saves and wins man of the match 3 times in a row. How did he not get the golden globe award?
The Best goalkeeper of the World Cup, he should've won the golden glove.
Yeah I agree he saved long shots.
He took his team to the quarter finals. No player in this world cup has been more usefull for his team than this guyV 3 Comments
He is the real leader of the Winner o the World Cup!
Did a lot of work for the Germans - wolphert
This flopper doesn't deserve to be on the list at all.V 1 Comment
He is not the master at anything he is the master at biting people
He scored 2 goals in his first game itself, he was only 70% fit on that game, but his biting was the worst and an unforgettable incident in FIFA 2014 - glambert
He is the greatest player in the 2014 FIFA World Cup because he had a skill that not many players have, the skill to bite someone and get banned from a few games! Go Suarez! #SuarezChomps
Bite #1 bite # 2 bite #3 Suarez bit Giorgio Chiellini! He is a good player yes, but eden hazard should be here instead of Suarez!V 12 Comments
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.. - paasadaniV 2 Comments
One of the many stars of a brilliant Germany team, scored a crucial goal against France in the quarter finals and was a solid defender! - wolphertV 2 Comments
Only good player on Fulham and CR.
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.
Best Chile soccer player
Fast & best footballer
He is the Super sub, scored 3 times as a substitute and provided the winning assist
Best super sub in the world cup!
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 sportV 1 Comment
Enyeama was really good. Nigeria would have not won a game if it weren't for him.
He and tim howard our my favorites
He is my favorite soccer player he is why I like Sounders FC this dude is the BOMB! But seriously, #26? REALLY!?V 2 Comments
I'm not saying I don't like Iniesta on Spain but, I really like him on FC Barcelona.
Meh, not much of a Spain or Barcelona fan.
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
He had one good kick the rest were rubbish.
One good goal against Colombia, but he killed Brazil vs Germany when Silva was gone.V 1 Comment
If he plays for Belgium he's awesome go Jan
Best defender in the tournament
You mean Sokratis? And yes, he was good
Why is Sokratis on this list twice?
Incredible play, he made Germany doubt about themselves
He definitely should be in the top 20!
He should be higher up.
YES! The Algerian star! - SuperBacca
One of the best defenders of the tournament
Trully the best defender!
At least he scored his penalty against Holland, but he played quite bad for his usual level. - keysonV 3 Comments
He did a good job cheering his team from the audience. - keyson
Contributed well to the USA in Brazil including a sick goal vs Portugal that helped to provide a spark.
He is a good goalie for France
Hands off for the great and so very underrated Algerian team, that stood firm against the World Cup Champion until the second extra half. - keyson
What is he doing here?! He should be way higher! One of the best goalkeepers of the whole worldcup
Oh come on he deserves waaay better!
He's not even that good. Everyone's like " Oh, I love you Raïs," but he sucked! Feghouli is the real deal!
