Arjen Robben: Love Him or Hate Him, He Has Starred at This World Cup | Bleacher Report

From a player point of view, this World Cup has graced us with individual displays of pure entertainment.We often praise and critique some of the tournament’s stars like Lionel Messi, James Rodriguez, Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo, while we gloss over the familiar yet unsung players that have caught our eyes from time to time.Many are rubbing their eyes with the numerous talents that have emerged in Brazil, but for me, there is only one name thus far that confirms what I already knew in terms of quality, even if he is, at least for now, short of greatness: Arjen Robben.Although his hint of self-confessed diving antics has often overshadowed his tireless work ethic and tenacious dribbling, Robben has been the most outstanding player of this tournament.Until now, some defenders have tried, and maybe only temporarily succeeded, to keep Robben off his favored left foot, but you always sense the danger when he begins to run at you. via | Bleacher Report
