    WC14 Predictions for player awards

    Right, there's now less than a month untill kickoff in Brazil, so it's time for some player predictions.


    The official awards

    Golden ball (Best player):

    Golden boot (Top scorer):

    Gloden glove (Best goalkeeper):

    Best young player (Under 21 at the beginning of the calender year):

    Barcaforum awards

    Surprise of the tournament (a player that few expected to be one of the stars of the tournament):

    The Poborsky award (a player coming from (relative) obscurity who has a great tournament and gets sold to a European powerhouse for silly money, only to flunk badly there):

    Flop of the tournament:




    Let me know if anyone has ideas for additional player awards, and I'll add them.
