    About Navas, FIFA says, “He shined as one of the best players of the 2014 Brazil World Cup, along with Costa Rica. Their performances include a spectacular performance in the knockout victory against Greece. He had 21 saves in the five games of the Ticos. At 26 years old, he is ahead of the rest and entering the best years of his career.”

    FIFA must also nominate the best player of the World Cup.

    Germany is dominating the list with four nominations, while Argentina has three players who fight for this designation.

    As expected the Argentina star Lionel Messi is one of the favorites. Ángel di María, Mats Hummels, Toni Kross, Philipp Lahm, Javier Mascherano, Lionel Messi, Thomas Muller, Neymar, Arjen Robben, James Rodriguez, are all of the nominees.

    Players like James Rodriguez, Arjen Robben and Neymar are also nominated despite not having the possibility of lifting the trophy as champions.

    The winner of this award will be announced next Sunday at the closing ceremony of Brazil 2014.
