Clash of the Titans this World Cup - Best Football Players of the World CupThe June 13, 2010, By SportTopNews
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have without a doubt been the best football players of the past few years, outplaying all other players in the game in terms of flawless talent and grace. However, every year other players come into the field, and all bets are open as the World Cup draws near the beginning of its first full week. ;
Lionel Messi, Barcelon’s Argentinean prodigy has carried on this season where he left off last year. Spearheading the previous year’s unprecedented Triplete , Messi completed the 2009 football year by winning no less than six trophies, including the Club World Cup. Between last year’s season and the current one, Messi’s goal ratio stands at 0.75 per game, a remarkable figure, to say the least. In fact, although he is not technically a stiker, he scores more goals than most of the great strikers football has known.
However, Messi’s worth as a player does not lie only in the copious amount of goals he manages to pull off. World Cup viewers will be in for a rare opportunity to see a true football wizard. In the Triplete season he set up 18 of Barcelona’s points, in all games. Together with his mastery at dribbling, Messi is an unprecedented player and it is rare to see the ball taken away from him. He was voted the FIFA player of the year in 2009, but it remains to be seen whether he will be able to repeat the record this year at the World Cup.
What has not been said about the gorgeous, swaggering Cristiano Ronaldo. Unless he is injured, this player will be hard to beat this Cup. Although played primarily infield, Ronaldo managed to score 15 goals in 16 games for Madrid this year. The former Ballon d´Or and FIFA will be aiming at having World Cup and reclaiming his number one spot.
