The ultimate goal of soccer is to be a World Cup champion, and every player dreams of holding the iconic trophy of FIFA World Cup. Italy won the Cup in 2006, and this year 32 teams consisting of 736 players will vie to be champions in South Africa from June 11 to July 11.
While the World Cup is a team achievement, it is also the biggest stage for individuals to display their talents. Here is our look at the top 10 players who are competing in the World Cup:
Doc Rivers took a huge fourth-quarter gamble by turning the Celtics‘ season over to a Big Baby and Nate Robinson, the former Knick who looks and sometimes behaves like a child but has a history of playing big when you least expect it.
Thursday night, Game 4 of the NBA Finals, was one of those moments.
Glen (Big Baby) Davis and Robinson rewarded Rivers’ faith by rallying the Celtics to a 96-89 victory over the Lakers that ensured the series will return to L.A. next week. With the Finals tied at 2-2, Game 5 is here Sunday.
