My favourite player in the 2014 World Cup is Arjen Robben of The Netherlands.  He has displayed good skill in every match so far; especially in the first match of this World Cup, Robben scored two goals in a 5–1 win against Spain. Also, in their second group stage match with Australia, Robben scored the team's opening goal in a 3-2 win to qualify for the knockout stage. He is a good striker and all teams are aware about his dangerous style.

Mexican goalkeeper Ochoa is my favourite player of the 2014 World Cup. Right from the start we have seen his  dependable task of holding the post with all his might. He has shown many great saves and his team mates can always count on him when they are in trouble. Somer of his saves in this World Cup will go down in history

I looooove Neymar, he is so cute and so young with a long way to go in the World Cup, at least for three more editions. Older players need to learn from his precision as a striker. Sadly, opponents always try to drop him on the field. They know, if Neymar is around, there will be goal afte goal.

No doubt, Neymar is the hero of the 2014 World Cup. I don't think there is any football lover who does not like him, he has won many hearts on and off the field due to his sincere game in each and every encounter. I am sure players of other countries fear his presence and only try to mark him, to prevent him from striking, because they know his shots are always right.

My favourite player is Neymar from the team Brazil. He is my favourite because he plays really awesome. He has won many awards and nominations for the best player including 'The Golden Ball'. He is also the sixth best player of the world.

Lionel Messi is my favourite player any day. When he is in possession of the ball, you only see some fantastic moves  and strikes. He has performed extremely well in this World Cup and should be rewarded for it with a  special award.

There is no doubt that Ronaldo is the best player. Whether his team wins or loses, his game is always something to watch and remember. He does full justice when he is on the field and displays a mature game unlike many other players.

I love Guillermo Ochoa of Mexico. He is the best goalkeeper of  the 2014 World Cup.
