2. Neymar- 6 Points
Neymar was fouled 10 times in this match vs Switzerland, most for any player in a World Cup match since Alan Shearer was fouled 11 times against Tunisia on June 15, 1998.
It also is the most fouls suffered for a Brazilian player in a World Cup match since 1966. pic.twitter.com/AZSI1a3gbF

Brazil started well against Switzerland with a wonderful strike from Philipe Coutinho. However, a controversial goal by Zuber leveled the match and there was no return for the Samba boys. Neymar was fouled 10 times on the day but still did not turn up as expected. The forward will want to do better than 6 points when his side faces Costa Rica on Friday. There is no doubt the World Most expensive player is capable of grabbing the headlines with a massive show.
1.Lionel Messi- 6 Points
A penalty miss, 11 shots and no goals…

Lionel Messi had 11 shots on goal against Iceland but could not score even a single goal. To make matters worse, the five times World Player of the Year also got a penalty but it was saved. This was a bad way to start the tournament for him especially after watching his main rival Cristiano Ronaldo score three in only 4 shots against Spain. Argentina could only manage a 1-1 draw but they must win their second game against Croatia on Thursday. The Barcelona star is capable of punishing anybody doubting his ability to deliver in Russia with more than 30 points on SokkaaStars World Cup Fantasy game.
