Did Messi Merit His W/Cup MVP Award?

Did Messi Merit His W/Cup MVP Award?

Dear reader, what do you think about Lionel Messi’s Golden Ball award at the 2014 World Cup? Did he deserve the honour?

Is there another player you believe merited it more than Messi and deserved to be honoured as the best player of the World Cup rather than the Argentina captain? Who is that player you think should have won the Golden Ball?


Four-time World Player of the Year (Balon D ‘Or) winner Messi failed to achieve his life-long dream of winning the FIFA World Cup when on 13 July, 2014 the South Americans were defeated 1-0 by Germany in the 2014 World Cup final. But controversy was stirred up when he was awarded the the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the tournament and presented with the symbolic Golden Ball trophy.

    Why this question? Lionel Messi deserved the MVP award given to him in the world cup. This is a captain who carried the burden of his Argentine team on his shoulder, did everything humanly possible to make sure his team succeeded. In his first march, he raised up to the occasion when the situation was so hard and made his country to smile. In his second march again, he made the difference when it seemed all hopes were lost and so in other marches. Please those that gave him the MVP did not just get up to do so. Remember he was a specifically marked player and thank God people did not injure him. He really deserve the golden ball than any other player in that world cup.
