Defeat that they will digest half by making only one draw (2-2) against the United States. It was during the last game, facing Ghana (Victory 2-1 of Portugal), that Cristiano Ronaldo will save his honor. The precious winger succeeds in scoring his 50th goal in selection, however not preventing Portugal from going out through the small gate of this competition.


For Lionel Messi, the mass is quite different. The Argentine genius managed to score 4 goals in the first phase, scoring at each game (Bosnia, Iran and Nigeria). He is each time designated man of the match and finishes even better dribbler of the group stage. Captain of his selection, Messi hoisted Argentina to the top of his group and confronted, in the next round, Switzerland (Victoire 1-0, the decisive pass of Messi). In the quarterfinals, the South Americans succeed – not without harm – in ejecting Belgium from Eden Hazard. Sentences that they also find in semi-finals against the Netherlands, Messi and his teammates qualifying for the final after the end of the shoot at the goals. But blunted physically and in technical breakdown, Argentina logically inclines 1-0 against Germany. Leo Messi, although quite transparent during the last matches of his team, is named best player of the World Cup 2014.
