World Cup 2014: The 50 best players of the World Cup

A look at the stand-out players from the tournament in Brazil
  • @simonrice

We are now down to our final two teams in a tournament that by common consent has been one of the greatest World Cups in memory.

32 teams arrived in Brazil and most have now fallen by the wayside, but many have left their mark on this tournament.

After much debate we've selected our 50 best players of the tournament.

Among our collection we have those rewarded for performances that sparked internet sensations and others that produced moments that won't be forgotten. Some players were consistently brilliant while others went from unknowns to the 'hottest transfer targets' over the course of the last month. We even found room for one England player.
