Lionel Messi World Cup Top Scorer odds

Messi is arguably most people’s favourite to win the Golden Boot, but in past international tournaments he has not produced the magic most Spanish League fans are accustomed to seeing. He is ranked as FIFA’s best footballer and his goal scoring potential and record is phenomenal. The most impressive thing about Messi is that he is always improving; year after year he manages to beat his own personal goal scoring records and just amazes the world. However, the reason why some may doubt him is that that although he is undoubtedly a contender for the Golden Boot, he has the potential at times to find a patch of bad form. This is evident from the 2012-13 season just gone for Messi, where he experienced a bit of criticism when he fell into a patch where he was not playing his best football and was therefore, not scoring as many goals as people expect from him. But it must be remembered that Messi has high standards himself, but fans and pundits have even higher standards, but nonetheless Messi put all the critics to silence after a formidably strong end to the season.

World Cup Golden boot betting – Can anyone stop Messi?

Some even argue that Messi is reliant upon his team, to provide him with first class service and support, but by all means it is true that Barcelona are perhaps the world’s best football side and therefore do provide him with such service, but essentially so is Argentina. Therefore, this point of view is not a criticism at all, he is blessed to have been able to play with some of the best footballers in the world and this only goes to aid his own ambitions and makes him an even greater threat on goal. Nonetheless, there is no doubt about it, no matter what team Messi would play for he will score goals and plenty of them. But with the fact that Argentina have a world class team within itself as stated, will greatly assist Messi’s goal scoring threat and he doesn’t even need such assistance, because he is the best goal scorer in the world and because of this, he is arguably the number one favourite perhaps by some distance, to win the Golden Boot.
