The Number 7 has always been branded as one of the best number for good players. Most likely due to the most overrated player in the history of football - Cristiano Ronaldo.
But in the FIFA World Cup this year, we see two really best player in Germany and Spain wearing the No. 7, living up to the expectations of everyone and maybe even more than anyone expected them to do!
David Villa of Spain and Bastain Schweinsteiger of Germany brings to life the real deal of the No. 7!
Bastian Schweinsteiger is Germany's Number 7 is described by this phrase "from hellraiser to one helluva player"
Indeed, Germany came into the World Cup with doubts and everyone doubted they could get anywhere near the finals but now, without the likes of M.Ballack, Germany has got to the semi finals.
Bastian Schweinsteiger, has been there when they beat England in the top 16 and when they trash Argentina 4-0.
They defeated Argentina as easy as Chelsea trash Wigan 8-0! however, Aregentina is a strong team and Germany took them on and defeated them from each angle. Argentina was simply outclassed.
Schweinsteiger's pass and play making builds up Germany's fast and furious style of play. and if they continue to play and demolish everyone just like what they did to Argentina and England, I am certain they will bring the World Cup back by the end of this week.
Go Amazing, Wonderful Glorious Germany!
Spain, for the first time in history of FIFA World Cup they have reached the semi finals. Disappointed or not, they are ready to give their all to bring their team to the finals and clearly they are ready to kick ass!
Everyone looked to and think of Fernando Torres when we talk about Spain, but after this world cup, people will be talking about David Villa one of the best No.7 in the world. The only reason he is underrate would be because of his humbleness.
David Villa have been coming up to provide Spain with the only goal in the top 16 matches to bring them to the semi finals. Defeating Portugal after their patient wait and David Villa scores! The only reason they did not trash Portugal would be because of Torres...
Then came Paraguay who thought they could just close up for 120 minutes and bring it to the penalties and test their luck once again. But David Villa wasn't ready for his fans to suffer the wait, once again, he provided and Spain is in the semi finals.
Highest honor for any football player and the highest honor for any football loving nation!
And now it is up for grab! Between the two best number 7 in the World!
Unlike No.7 like Cristiano Ronaldo who might be the most overrated player in history of football, these No. 7 are the really deal as they bring their nation all the way to the semi finals!
Of course we must not forget that football is still a team game and no one should claim too much credit for themselves otherwise you will be like Portugal!
The best way for this world cup to end would be that Germany vs Spain is the finals... because I will predict whoever wins that semi wins the cup and whoever loses deserve to be number 2 while NRD and URU should have just play for 3rd and 4th.
