Revealed,Roy Hodgson voted for Javier Mascherano instead of Ronaldo or Messi as being the best player 2014,huh
Once more on Monday night, they were crowned as the best two players in football - despite the World Cup providing the greatest advertisement to the modern game. It also served as an example as to why both still have some way to go to reach the pinnacle of the sport. Ronaldo – albeit carrying an injury – was a shadow of himself in Brazil, while Messi started superbly but saw his form fall away when Argentina needed it most in the latter stages. The likes of Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller and Philipp Lahm had fantastic personal tournaments, as well as great calendar years with Bayern Munich, and also delivered the silverware in the greatest competition of them all. But that mattered not come Ballon d’Or time. When did the World Cup become so meaningless in the minds of the football masses? How did that pulsating month in Brazil come to be so quickly forgotten amidst a sea of La Liga hat-tricks? England coach Roy Hodgson was widely lambasted on social media for selecting Javier Mascherano as his number o ...

His man of the match performances came early in the competition against Switzerland, Nigeria, Iran and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Aside from Messi, Argentina had two nominees – Ángel di María and Javier Mascherano. Germany provided four candidates: Mats Hummels, Toni Kroos, Philipp Lahm and Thomas Müller. Neymar was the only candidate from Brazil on the list, which was selected by Fifa’s technical study group of coaching analysts. Arjen Ro ...

Manchester United are looking into the possibility of bringing former centre-back Gerard Pique back to Old Trafford in January. The Spain international left the Red Devils to rejoin his boyhood club Barcelona in May 2008 for £5miilion, but according to the Express, United are hoping to lure him back to England for a second time. After being a regular for the La Liga giants in his 6 full seasons there, Pique is now less of a guarantee on new manager’s Luis Enrique’s team sheet, with Javier Mascherano and summer acquisition Jeremy Mathieu appearing to be the first-choice centre-back pairing this term. Signing a world-class defender is certainly United boss Louis van Gaal’s priority when the transfer window re-opens in the New Year, and Pique would undoubtedly fit the bill. Since his return to the Nou Camp, the 27-year-old has picked up 4 La Liga titles and 2 Champions League trophies with the Catalan side, as well as 1 European Championships and 1 World Cup with Spain. Pique only signed a new 5-year ...

Football's governing body Fifa has launched an investigation into concussions in the game after a string of high-profile incidents. The recent World Cup in Brazil was punctuated by a string of concussions, those suffered by Alvaro Pereira, Javier Mascherano and Christoph Kramer - the latter in the tournament's final - the most notable. With no set guidelines in place, all three played on in their games, although Mascherano was the only one not to subsequently be forced off. That led to criticism of the game's governing body, who have now revealed measures are being taken to boost their understanding of such issues. A statement read: "As well as prevention, determining the most appropriate medical treatment for footballers after head injuries is also crucial. "With this in mind, researchers from University-Hospital Zurich's Clinic of Neurology and Zurich's Schulthess Clinic have launched a collaborative project with Fifa and have defined the initial factors needed to determine exactly when a player should ...
Arsenal are understood to have accepted a £15 million offer for captain Thomas Vermaelen from Barcelona. The Catalan club have already signed Jeremy Mathieu from Valencia this summer in a £20 million deal to strengthen their defence and now they have opted to sign another central defender to help improve the defence of a team that conceded seven goals more than eventual champions Atletico Madrid, despite scoring 23 goals more. That is a small margin of error that led to Barcelona losing the title on the final day as they could only draw with the eventual champions, when a win would have been enough to earn them the title. Barcelona have long neglected their defence, with Javier Mascherano showing what a formidable player he can be when played in midfield during this summer’s World Cup, when Barcelona have chosen to play him out of position in central defence. The deal appears to be a good one for Arsenal, given that Vermaelen wants to leave because he cannot force his way into the first team, and his ...
Brendan Rodgers insists Liverpool FC 's summer transfer dealings shows the lure of Anfield is strong – despite Luis Suarez's desire to move on. The prolific Uruguayan striker opted to make the switch to Barcelona for £75million. The Reds have also been unable to cling on to the likes of Xabi Alonso, Javier Mascherano and Fernando Torres over the past five years. However, the manager is unconcerned and says the reality is that Suarez was never going to stay at Anfield in the long-term. “It’s more than football. It’s a social aspect where these players come in from South America and the like and they are not going to set up camp for too long,” Rodgers said. “They see it as a pathway back to their own country. Luis had his time here, it was great and then he has looked to move on. He will be in Spain for a time and then end up back in South America. “The big clubs will always lose big players at some point. It’s not due to any lack of ambition – we showed that last season with how we kept ...

Alessandro Nesta on Lionel Messi's Golden Ball award: “He’s the best player in the world, but in this World Cup there were many other players who deserved the award more. “Thomas Muller for sure, James Rodriguez as well – he was the best player. But also Javier Mascherano and Bastian Schweinsteiger were better than Messi.”
English newspapers do not feel happy because of the victory of Lionel Messi named best player of the 2014 World Cup, there is a consensus that there is a star of Barcelona does not deserve it at all. Nominated newspaper "Daily Mail" 5 players are entitled to the prize of best player, and they Arjen Robben (Netherlands), James Rodriguez (Colombia), Javier Mascherano (Argentina), Manuel Neuer and Thomas Muller (Germany). Messi won the award for the best player, although he was out of sorts in the final meeting, and only scored 4 goals, all in the first round only.
Lionel Messi was voted the player of the World Cup in controversial circumstances. Here's FIVE players that deserved the Golden Ball above the Argentina skipper. Join William Hill and get a free £25 matched bet! 1) James Rodriguez How good was this man? The No.1 contender for the Golden Ball. He was brilliant in every game he played and scored in every game he played. Most goals. The best goal. Should it have been in doubt? James Rodriguez of Colombia (Getty) 2) Arjen Robben Playing the best football of his career, this man was fantastic for the Netherlands. A couple of brilliant goals, hundreds of mazy runs and inspired his team to a more than decent tournament. Top class! Netherlands' forward Arjen Robben (Getty) 3) Javier Mascherano Messi wasn't even the best player in his team. He was good, but not at the consistent level of Javier Mascherano. There's no way Argentina would have made it to the final without him. Inspirational. Argentina's midfielder Javier Mascherano (Getty) 4) Thomas Muller Does thi ...
Official: Javier Mascherano to terrorize opposition attackers until 2018!
FIVE PLAYERS MORE DESERVING OF THE GOLDEN BALL James Rodriguez (Colombia) - Despite playing just five games at the tournament, the Monaco forward scored six times and picked up the Golden Boot award. Thomas Muller (Germany) - Again a standout at a major tournament, he found the net on five occasions and was a constant threat for the eventual winners. Javier Mascherano (Argentina) - Different class in the middle of midfield as he took each game, particularly in the knockout stages, by the scruff of the neck and roared the South Americans on. Completed the most tackles of anyone at the World Cup. Manuel Neuer (Germany) - Hugo Lloris, beware. This man is the very definition of a sweeper-keeper. Barely put a foot wrong all tournament with a string of top saves and bossed his area like no other. Arjen Robben (Holland) - Although there were simulation antics, Robben's poise in possession and potency in front of goal were deciding factors in Louis van Gaal's team finishing third.
The BIG things Arsenal boss MUST learn from World Cup? That’s it Arsenal fans! The World Cup is over and we have nearly a month to wait before our Gunners are back in serious action. Arsene Wenger will be heading back from Brazil where he has been on pundit duty for French TV, and we are all hoping that the Frenchman is going to get down to some transfer business in the coming weeks, but what has Wenger learned from the World Cup? Hopefully, the performance of Javier Mascherano has convinced the Prof that having a top quality defensive midfielder is quite handy. Unfortunately the Gunners have no chance of getting him, but we surely need someone like him. At least we can feel better about not signing Higuain for a king’d ransom last summer. The fact that Germany left Per Mertesacker out of the starting line-up again should also suggest to Wenger that he needs to sign a replacement for the giant German, not some player to provide cover. Mats Hummels would not be a bad choice. Our BFG reads the game as w ...

RIO DE JANEIRO: It says everything of Argentina’s World Cup that should they go on to beat Germany in Sunday’s final in Rio, many expect Javier Mascherano, not Lionel Messi to be crowned the tournament’s best player. Mascherano’s last-ditch tackle to prevent Arjen Robben from putting the Netherlands into the final at Argentina’s expense in the semi-final has already become an internet sensation. The “little chief” has appeared in mocked up photographs as Che Guevara and historic Argentine general Jose San Martin amongst others

Four Germany players have been shortlisted for the World Cup Golden Ball award along with Argentina stars Angel Di Maria, Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano.
Javier Mascherano will bag the GOLDEN BALL of this tournament ! Any contrary or adverse persons can bet me 100 sgd. Will be very pragmatic and settled immediately after the results.
Javier Mascherano did not have a pleasant Wednesday. In Argentina's match against the Netherlands, not only did Mascherano take a hit to the head, but he says he suffered another painful injury while defending a shot by Arjen Robben.

Football: Once the weakest link, now he's Argentina's hero Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal feels the pain and rues the day he taught Sergio Romero how to stop penalties, sending Argentina through to take on Germany at the World Cup final Goalkeeper Sergio Romero saved two penalties yesterday to send Argentina into the World Cup final with a 4-2 shootout win over the Netherlands after the game finished in a 0-0 stalemate. A day after Germany lit up the World Cup with their clinical 7-1 destruction of host Brazil, the Netherlands and Argentina could not manage a goal between them in 120 minutes before the shootout. Romero - thought to be a weak link in this Argentine team and not even a starter for his Monaco club most of last season - blocked penalties by Ron Vlaar and Wesley Sneijder. For Argentina, Lionel Messi, Ezequiel Garay, Sergio Aguero and Maxi Rodriguez all converted their spot kicks. In a matchup of two of football's powerhouse nations, two-time champion Argentina will play three-time winner Ger ...

Argentina's Javier Mascherano suffered a unique injury when he made a brilliant last-second tackle on Robben near the end of extra time.
Everyone is so busy about celebrating Argentina's win over Netherlands that no one noticed Javier Mascherano made 7 clear blocks to Robben for which the Dutch could not qualify and one clear block inside the D-Box at the dead time which helped Argentina to take the game on Extra -time ! :3 For me Mascherano was the main Hero yesterday !
They knew that this chance might not come again for decades, if ever. When would they have another messiah like Messi? When would the tournament be close enough for their face-painted fans to drive to? When would they have a chance to lift the golden trophy inside Brazil’s holiest of sporting shrines? “We must hold onto the dream,” midfielder Javier Mascherano had declared as Argentina was preparing for yet another World Cup showdown with the Netherlands. And so the Albiceleste did on Wednesday evening in soggy Sao Paulo, grasping it by the digits of goalkeeper Sergio Romero, who blocked two Dutch bids in the shootout and gave his teammates a 10-finger boost into Sunday’s final against Germany in Rio de Janeiro. “We never gave up on winning tonight and my players gave everything, every last drop of sweat,” declared Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella after his squad had won the shootout by a 4-2 count after 120 scoreless minutes.
Javier Mascherano. You absolute beast. Man of The Match in the semi finals for me.
Javier Mascherano, the best player of Argentina tonight!!
For those of you who don't know, my mother has been living with the effects of a TBI for the last 12 years. It is a true miracle she survived and a gift from God. I suffered a concussion this past summer snowboarding with Beau Bishop. Although my TBI was very minor it gave me a true scare after seeing what could have happened. In last night's game, Argentina's Javier Mascherano took a blow to the head and collapsed. He was up in 2 minutes, way too soon to have been properly assessed for a concussion. I hope you all will take a good look at this as well as the other TBI postings I make in the future. TBI's are life changing. I've made it out on the lucky side. Others don't. Others die. Thank You.
To all my friends who think Argentina is a one man army, here is a small synopsis to clear your misconception regarding the Albiceleste. • Javier Mascherano; Leader on the pitch, by far the star for Argentina in this worldcup, one of the best if not the best defensive midfielder in the world. Has been part of Barcelona since 2010 and his graph is always going upward. . Has won almost every tournament at club level. • Angel Di Maria, has been part of Real Madrid stardom since 2010, played a vital role in galacticos claiming La Decima this year. Like Mascherano he has won everything at the offing at club level. • Pablo Zabaleta, by far he was the best right back in Premier League last season, won’t provide Germany the space which they enjoyed against Brazil for sure. • Sergio Augero, ask any Manchester United fan who is he and they will curse him. The last second goal against QPR won citizens a league titile in almost after half a century in 2012. One of the top strikers in the recent history. • ...
It’s an Argentina Germany final July 10 2014 at 04:25am By Julian Linden Argentina's Javier Mascherano hugs teammate Lionel Messi (back) after their team's victory over the Netherlands at the end of their 2014 World Cup semi-final at the Corinthians arena in Sao Paulo on July 9, 2014. Picture: Dylan Martinez Rio de Janeiro - Argentina reached their first World Cup final in 24 years on Wednesday, beating the Netherlands 4-2 on penalties after the first scoreless semi in the tournament's history, with old foes Germany awaiting them in Sunday's showpiece. The match will be a repeat of the 1986 and 1990 World Cup finals, the first of which was won by Argentina before the then West Germany gained revenge four years later. Argentina's win compounded the misery for hosts Brazil, who were humiliated 7-1 by Germany on Tuesday before seeing their worst fears realised when their South American neighbours booked their place at the Maracana on Sunday. Midfielder Maxi Rodriguez scored the decisive penalty for Argenti ...
Javier Mascherano! What a brilliant player! Truly world class. The way he marked Robben and Van Persie all together was just amazing!
I wasn't even born when Netherlands and Argentina played each other in 1974 and 1978, but I remember the 1998 clash as clear as daylight. My heart was broken as a Bergkamp stunner late into the second half (after both teams were reduced to 10 men) put Argentina out of the World Cup. Yesterday though, was a different ball game. Louis Van Gaal almost gave up trying to attack Argentina because he wanted EVERYBODY to surround the talisman, Lionel Messi. Sabella played 3-5-2 with 3-5-2. He played it safe, but for a reason, as the Dutch were always a threat on the counter attack. While Messi wasn't able to influence the game, Javier Mascherano, Ezequiel Garay and Romero at the back were the rocks of Argentina, repelling any attacks from the Oranje (that tackle on Robben from Mascherano during ET was pure class). Robben barely got 10 touches on the ball throughout the game and RVP wasn't his usual self. Lavezzi was brilliant in the first half, running all the way up and down that right flank, trying to make oppo ...

Pass masters Posted at 09:28 The German trio of Toni Kroos, Philipp Lahm and Per Mertersacker have now completed more passes than any other players at the 2014 World Cup. Kroos leads the way on 354 completed passes, with Lahm (342) and Arsenal defender Mertesacker (299) ahead of Chile's Gary Medel on 281 and Javier Mascherano of Argentina with 278.
Argentina switches to 3-man attack against Iran Brazil (AP) — Argentina has returned to a three-man attack consisting of Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain and Sergio Aguero in its World Cup match against Iran on Saturday. Coach Alejandro Sabella started with a more defensive lineup with only two strikers in Argentina's 2-1 win over Bosnia-Herzegovina in the Group F opener. He then changed to a 4-3-3 formation in the second half — a system favored by Messi — and he's continuing with that lineup at the Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte. Argentina will play with Fernando Gago, Javier Mascherano and Angel Di Maria in the midfield and a four-man defense, meaning Hugo Campagnaro, who started against Bosnia, has been dropped. Iran coach Carlos Queiroz made one change to the team he fielded in the 0-0 draw against Nigeria, bringing in forward Masoud Shojaei for midfielder Khosro Heydari in what could be a more attacking formation. Lineups: Argentina: Sergio Romero, Pablo Zabaleta, Ezequiel Garay, Fernando Gago ...
Argentina need to play a 4-3-3 formation, with Javier Mascherano, Fernado Gago and Lucas Biglia in midfield. And Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria and Sergio Aguero upfront.
Argentina’s 2-1 defeat of Bosnia and Herzegovina in their 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ debut is hardly likely to generate great delight among Albiceleste fans. That said, there are times when all that matters is getting the job done, and this was one such occasion. Those fans are likely to make a similar observation about the game as the players themselves did after it was all over, namely that Alejandro Sabella’s side were more fluent after the restart, when the coach switched from the 5-3-2 formation he began the game with to the 4-3-3 that had worked so well for him in the qualifiers. The introduction of Fernando Gago and Gonzalo Higuain for Hugo Campagnaro and Maxi Rodriguez also helped his side approach their usual rhythm. One man who saw things that way was midfielder Javier Mascherano, who was making his 99th appearance for his country. “Even though we took an early lead, we struggled to get into the game in the first half,” he told FIFA. “We played better in the second, though.” “We ...
