David Luiz, defender of the host team, Brazil has climbed to the top of the latest ranking of the Castrol performance index in FIFA world cup 2014 so far with 9.79 score, while others also edging their way up the standings with James Rodriguez of Columbia at second position (9.74 score) and Karim Benzema of France at the third position (9.7 score).

David Luiz brought the house down in the Brazil's match against Columbia. The top man became cream of the crop when, while swerving free kick in the quarter finals, he scored Brazil's goal and helped his team getting second goal of the match which ruled Columbia out of the world cup and Brazil to face Germany in the semi finals.

Although it is quite shocking to see that the world class Argentinean footballer, Lionel Messi couldn't manage to get to the top ten in the Castrol performance ranking which is literally a jaw dropping and heart breaking news for Messi's fan who would really want to see the apple of their eye as a hero in the world cup 2014.

Moreover, the winner of golden boot in FIFA world cup 2010, Thomas Muller of Germany; winner of silver boot David Villa of Spain (the winning team of 2010) and winner of bronze boot Wesley Sneijder of the Netherlands could not also be seen anywhere in the top ten positions of the Castrol players ranking of 2014.

World cup is surely a place where anyone can make a name for himself and win hearts of the spectators. Let's see then who would be successful in getting the precious golden boot this FIFA world cup of 2014.
