Who will win the Golden Ball at Russia 2018?

Tuesday 12th June 2018

Not to be confused with the Golden Boot, the Golden Ball is awarded to the tournament's best player. Lionel Messi won it under controversial circumstances in Brazil. When he disappeared in the later matches, many felt the award should have gone to Manuel Neuer or even Messi's teammate, Javier Mascherano whose defensive work kept Argentina in matches when the attack failed. Can Messi win it again? Will he deserve it this time?

Let's look at his chances, as well as the men primed to stop him. Will it be one of the favourites? Could it be an outside bet? Or perhaps a potential newcomer on the scene? You probably think it will be someone I don't even mention. That's football for you.

I love the Premier League and I am a season ticket holder at Manchester United. However, I do follow my local club Bury FC as much as possible. I'm a lover of all things related to football, especially like the odd game of FIFA and more than the odd game of Football Manager. If you don't find me talking about actual football you will usually find me talking about Fantasy Football. I'm a self-confessed addict. 

I'm definitely a football addict.
