World Cup Golden Ball: Who was the best player at Russia 2018?

Friday 13th July 2018

The most dramatic World Cup of our generation stages its final act on Sunday. Sixty-two matches are complete. Only one went goalless. All that scoring means there have been memorable individual performances. The Golden Ball is meant for the most memorable. Lionel Messi, Zinedine Zidane and Diego Maradona have won it. Some would say Messi's performance in 2014 was forgettable, his honour undeserved. That won't be an issue in 2018. The Barcelona legend exited after the Round of 16.

Round & White's Jonathan Kahn surveyed the landscape for potential winners before the tournament began. Of his dozen nominees, just four remain in Russia. Three merit notice here. It is important to remember the Golden Ball winner is decided before the final is played, even though it is announced after. Thus, we know all we need now to make our choice.  

Here are the players I rate.
