Who can become the new "best player in the world"?

Although it's still hard to take the title away from Zidane since when
healthy he is far and away the best, I got to thinking about who could
lay claim at his title with great performances coming up.  Obviously,
it's not Vieri or that Danish guy, or Klose from Germany.

I think the two that stand out, if they can lead their teams to glory,
might be Raul or Francesco Totti.  Rivaldo is possible as well, but
let's hope not, after that pathetic display he put on in the opener.

Beckham is also a possibility, but he really hasn't shown much so far.
Hopefully his talent will shine through in the knockout stage.

As Pele said, you always need a star player to win a world cup.

My guess is it will come from one of these guys:

Raul
Beckham
Totti
Rivaldo

If the Germans advance far, which is part of the requirements to perhaps be
recognized as a great player in the Cup, Ballack may be a candidate (although
an outsider).

Rivaldo sort of is the best, or at least was, but is on the way down
Ronaldo is more likely as he is young and may return to form

Ballack gets my vote for European footballer of the year.

Not to mention that he just completed the trifecta with the CL trophy
a couple of weeks ago.

Anyway, there ain't going to be a Diego-like uber performance.

Yes, including scoring the game winning goal at Barca, and the game
winner in the final itself!
