Lionel Messi wasn’t even the best player in the Argentina team, never-mind the whole 2014 World Cup, but he still picked up the prestigious Golden Ball last night.
It was a controversial decision that took Twitter by storm, and while he’s widely regarded as the best player in the world, it was mostly negative for the Barcelona man.
There is no doubt that he was poor throughout the tournament – he definitely knew this himself, and with Argentine team mate Mascherano having the tournament of his life, it must have been a lot harder to swallow.
The prestigious award is sponsored by Adidas – who also heavily sponsor Messi, so it’s no surprise in hindsight, but who do you think deserved it?
We want to know!
