Why there is no English players in top 5?
Steven Gerrard or Glen Johnson! Only them two were on top of their class.

England did not win the match against the US and players are rewarded with more points when winning a match. In addition, Gerrard received a Yellow Card, which lowers the score with a point. Brief explanation of the WG Index:

Because they did not play well against USA. Maybye one of the most boring matches so far in the tournement. Hopefully they will play better next round and maybye then some of the player can move up to a top 5 or 10 list.

but what about Maicon (Brazil) and Klose (Germany)?

Cemperor5005d ago

Maicon just made it in the top 10. If Brazil would not have conceded a goal, then Maicon would make the top spot together with Heinze from Argentina.

Klose is currently on rank number 15. Podolski ranks higher (number 5) because of a succesful assist.

I personally thing Robiniho should be up there, i havnt seen him play so well in a long time.

zico5004d ago

Yes he played good, but Brazil didn`t play as we used to se them. But I`m sure they are gonna play mutch better in the next matches. Hopefully they don`t meet Spain in the 1/8final. That`s my favorite final match!

Just a note: this list is not based on an editorial piece or the opinion of a journalist. It's calculated based on statistics.
