    Sorry, I'm a little distracted. I meant to say 'World Cup Final', not 'World Cup'.

    Agree wholeheartedly with the second part. To end the debate, here are two hypotheticals:

    Player A (let's call him Messi/Ronaldo/whatever you will) scores a hat-trick in the final. His team loses 4-3 with a couple of own goals, one keeper howler, and one refereeing decision that was just wrong. Never wins World Cup.

    Player A does little in final. Game goes to penalties. Perhaps scores his penalty, does nothing more. Team wins World Cup.

    Assume all other details of player's career are the same, consistently excellent, lots of other trophies, etc.

    It is ludicrous that in scenario A, player A's quality as a footballer is somehow less valid than in player B's scenario. Sure, they are extreme examples - but they do indicate how silly the 'winning the World Cup' obsession can be.
    Yep completely agree but then obviously hundreds of millions of casual fans watch the world cup who take no interest in club competitions.

    Messi got player of the tournament? What the ****? The bias around Messi is at insane levels.
    He was the best player at the tournament. Was below his best but still above the rest for the most part. I would have liked to see mascherano get it.

    IMO, Messi has done enough to be up there with Pele and Maradona. Maldini never won the World Cup, yet he's widely recognised as one of (if not the) best defender ever.

    The likes of Muller, Rodriguez and Neuer were easily better than him. Stop kidding yourself.

    They've been listening to the dopey pundits trash him all day. Carried an average team (if that) to the final. The only other top class players (who were fit for the tournament) that they have are Zabaleta and probably Mascherano.

    Ach, I have no idea where this "you have to win the world cup to be a legend" comes from. It's such a false assumption.

    What if bale becomes even better than he is and become a the best player in the world, he might not even make it to a world cup finals tournament never mind win it. But that wouldn't be his fault he doesn't play for an amazing national team.

    He definitely wasn't. Mascherano would have been a much better pick.
