With the Group Stage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup now having drawn to a close, the tournament already has its heroes and villains, with half of the teams having progressed to the last sixteen and half having exited the tournament already.
To mark this point in the competition, we’ve taken a look at each teams’ performances so far and picked out one stand-out performer from the group stage from each of the 32 competing nations.
Brazil / Group A / Neymar
Neymar is the poster boy of the competition and, so far, the Barcelona forward has lived up to his star billing. The former Santos man scored twice against Croatia on the opening night and, despite a disappointing showing in the 0-0 draw against Mexico, he was back on form to score two fine goals as the host sealed their progress with a 4-1 win over Cameroon.
