    Mascherano deserves a vote for his brilliance in the knockout rounds. Rodriguez wins it for me, though, purely because he has set the public's imaginations alight.

    There is a golden glove award which is why Neuer is not on the list. Neuer, Navas and Romero

    This list is absolutely bizarre:

    Have no idea how Kroos is nominated, he's literally had 2 good games.

    Di Maria even less

    Lahm was poor at CM and just good at RB again for 2 games, how is he nominated?

    Messi nominated for about 1 minute of combined action, but it's Messi so everyone will just ignore his averageness otherwise wont they?

    Has to be James or Muller.
    Yep, pretty much.

    These clowns will say Messi was MOTM even if he was on the bench injured the entire game. I dread to think how much more overrated he will become if Argentina win the Cup.

    For me Robben, Rodriguez have been consistently the best attacking players. Robben has not had enough credit really, if you are not going to give it to Rodriguez for only getting to a 1/4 final give it to Robben. He has been superb and constantly makes things happen for his team.

    No chance Messi should get it. And why is Di Maria even in the list? Germany have put in a great collective effort. Muller and Hummels the standouts for me. But that's to take nothing away from the likes of Lahm and Kroos - who are also deservedly in the reckoning too.
