ESPN "Fan Rant Challenge" – Who is the World Cup's Best Player So Far?

 ESPN "Fan Rant Challenge"   Who is the World Cup's Best Player So Far?

ESPN’s proclaimed “footy fanatic”, Josh Elliot has called out all World Cup fans. Sportscenter wants to know who you think is the best player in the 2010 World Cup so far. The ESPN anchor picks Gonzalo Higuain, the convenient choice after today’s hat trick against South Korea. However, I think the EPL Talk readers are more creative and knowledgeable than that. Do you think Diego Forlan has been more impressive? How about players without goals to their name? Robinho, Enyeama, Messi? I think cases can be made for many players who have been extremely influential thus far.

View the challenge page by clicking here, to see the official rules and submission instructions. Here is Mr. Elliot’s argument for Higuain:

The contest is simple, make your video around 1 minute in length. Keep it clean. Be creative, persuasive, accurate, funny, and awesome. Send it to ESPN, and the winning video will be posted on on Saturday, June 19th. The deadline for submission is Friday at 12pm ET. So get to work!

Although ESPN will only pick one winning video to appear on Saturday’s Sportscenter, we would still love to see all your videos. So after you make your video and send it to ESPN, feel free to post to our Facebook page, or email your video to me and I’ll add it. We want to see how creative our readers are! Have fun!

    I think Domenech has played brilliantly for Mexico and Uruguay.

      i didn’t think about this, it is true the french team is just bending over like usual though…. they can’t play together for crap… they get angry at each other… don’t have national pride at all…. and bribery is the only one that looks like he is trying to stop the ship from sinking…

      but give credit to uruguay and mexico they fought the premier league filled team and fought them hard

  2. Ivan says:

    Lionel Messi is the best player to ever play the game of football…it’s sad when some compare Messi w/ Rooney; Wayne is a good player, but comparing him to Messi is borderline blasphemy.
    And, yes, it is always a good day when the French lose! 3 and out, hopefully, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out!!!

    • Jake Islas says:

      Well, declaring that at this point in time in my opinion is way premature. The jury is still out on who the best player in the world or of all time is without a doubt. As far is this World Cup goes, Messi has played 2 games already, so let’s see how other potentials perform. But since ESPN’s challenge asks who is the best so far in the WC, do you think Messi has been the best? If so, let’s see your video!

  3. Andrei says:

    Robert Green has been exceptional so far. At least as far as US fans are concerned…

  4. TCAP says:

    Diego Forlan because he almost single handedly dismantled South Africa.

  5. solo says:

    Forlan… Messi… G. Dos Santos
    all three have taken control over games… maybe haven’t scored but have struck panic against opponents
