Deserving the golden ball or not... He had a great WC
It was rather like Ronaldo's 98 where he played very well....except for the final

Messi against Nigeria was the only game where you could argue he deserved the golden ball. Against Bosnia he was marked out of most of the game and it was similar against Iran, Switzerland AND Belgium. Against the Dutch and Germans, he was practically anonymous apart from that glaring miss in the final.
When Maradona thinks it was undeserved and Blatter is scrambling to distance himself from the decision, you know something is wrong.

It seems pretty clear that they did it to try and market Messi.

First time one of the two best players in the world has got close to winning the WC, but he fucked it up and so they rewarded him with the Golden Ball to try and make it seem like he did win.

That's what I said...he was great in 98 up until the final where he was shit ( one-time epilepsy )
Messi was good early on then not-so-good in the final.

FIFA's bias is ridiculous.....all year Blatter has been sucking Messi's dick and shitting on CR7 till CR played out of his mind (and Messi got injured) and he was forced to give CR7....he was only too happy to give him this one.

German World Cup ‘gaucho’ victory dance draws fire


Berlin: Commentators chided the German football team on Wednesday for gently mocking Argentina during a giant World Cup winners party in Berlin, an event that marked a rare exuberant celebration of national pride.
In a country where strident patriotism is still largely taboo, newspapers said the young players’ “tasteless” victory dance on Tuesday reflected badly on the country.

Six of the players including Mario Goetze, the sole scorer during Sunday’s 1-0 win over Argentina, performed a taunt often seen in stadium stands, on a stage set up behind the capital’s Brandenburg Gate before hundreds of thousands of flag-waving fans.

“This is how the gauchos (Argentines) walk, the gauchos walk like this,” they sang, hunched over, to cheers from the crowd.

Then they jumped up and chanted, “This is how the Germans walk, the Germans walk like this!” and strutted around the stage.

The word “gaucho” is the South American equivalent of “cowboy”.

Several German newspapers called the display of swagger before the world’s media a sour note after an otherwise pitch-perfect World Cup.

“The victory celebration at the Brandenburg Gate turned into a gigantic own-goal,” the conservative daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung fumed.

“With a mean satire of the opponents in the final, the German world champions are squandering the image of an open-minded, tolerant nation.”

Berlin’s centre-left Tagesspiegel called the display “tasteless” and said it overshadowed the team’s gracious behaviour on the pitch in Brazil.

“The German modesty is over. Their joy wasn’t enough, they only find full satisfaction when they torture their mourning vanquished opponents a little,” it said.

“Maybe that is what will remain in the heads of many people outside Germany from this World Cup. And then the frenetic applause of the audience. They didn’t mean anything by it, that is probably true. But they showed that in football there are not only fools but damned fools.”

The criticism sparked a lively debate in English and German on Twitter under the hashtag #gauchogate, with many attacking what they saw as political correctness run amok.

A user with the handle @suburp said “Germany has a word for #schadenfreude but struggles w fun and healthy national pride. It’s only FUSSBALL (football). regt euch ab. (Calm down).”

Die Welt newspaper said the dance did not mark a “shining moment” but added: “We don’t need to overplay it.”

watched every second of this game...but there is a level of enjoyment that is missing when you really don't care which team wins

after italy fell out, it was difficult to get in to watching the games as much
