INTERVIEW: Lionel Messi, Argentina

Messi on Diego

To be honest, pointing out just one skill from Diego is difficult, for some reason he is the most complete player in history, and for lots of people the best in the world, this is why it is difficult to pick just one.

INTERVIEW: Nelson Valdez,

Spanish Language

Romario

El primer Mundial que vi fue en el 94, pero no me acuerdo de Paraguay, creo que no estuvo en el Mundial. Sólo del partido que me acuerdo es que Romario era mi ídolo. Era un niño y que el partido de la final fue contra Di Baggio. Di Baggio o Romario. Y para mí fue un partido muy lindo porque al final Di Baggio erró el penal para que Romario saliera campeón.


TRANSLATION

The first World Cup I saw was ’94 but I don’t remember Paraguay, I don’t think they made it to the World Cup. What I remember was that Romario was my idol. I was a child and I remember that the final was against Baggio. Baggio against Romario. For me it was a very nice match because in the end Baggio missed the penalty and Romario won.


INTERVIEW: Gonzalez

Spanish Language

Gonzalez on Pele

Básicamente, lo que más me gusta de él o lo que hace que a mí me guste este jugador es que por la explosividad que tenía, por la habilidad que tenía con la pelota, por todas las cosas que él se ingeniaba, por todos los goles que marcó. O sea, básicamente eso. Él era un jugador totalmente completo, que bueno, uno se pregunta al verlo jugar como que si fuera fácil la cosa, pero para él era como todo fácil y no es fácil, es muy difícil.

TRANSLATION

Basically, what I like about him or what makes me like him is his energy, his skill with a football, the things he created, all the goals he scored. That’s it, basically. He was an all-round player and when you see him play he makes everything look easy, but it is not easy. In fact, it is very difficult.


INTERVIEW: KAKA, Brazil

Portuguese Language

Kaka on Pele

I want to talk to you about hat tricks, World Cup hat tricks, Pele scored a hat trick in 1958 against France in the semi final just tell me the qualities of the great man that everybody knows, just to describe to me what the legend of Pele is and if you can mention his hat trick in 1958

ninguém vai conseguir fazer os feitos que o Pelé fez, inclusive ter feito três golos num jogo, que foi na Copa de 58. Isso demonstra mais uma vez a qualidade que o Pelé teve, tinha e acredito que tem, claro, um talento você nunca esquece. Mas no período que ele foi atleta profissional, ele demonstrou toda essa qualidade.

TRANSLATION

no one will be able to achieve what Pelé achieved, including the three goals he scored in just one game, in the World Cup 1958. That demonstrates once more the quality Pelé had, and still has, I believe, you never forget a talent. But when he was a professional athlete he proved he had all those qualities.

INTERVIEW: KAKA, Brazil

Portuguese Language

Kaka on Romario

The Adidas Golden Ball that goes to the best player of the World Cup again if you could mention Adidas Golden Ball; 7 Brazilians have won that award since 1930 tell me about Romario who won in 1994, tell me about that award and mention Romario?

O Romário é um grande ídolo brasileiro, principalmente por essa conquista do Mundial de 94. Eu, como torcedor, a Copa de 94 é a Copa que eu mais lembro, assim, que eu tenho a primeira grande memória de Copa do Mundo. A de 90 eu lembro pouco, mas a de 94 foi a que eu mais vivi como torcedor, depois a de 98 e 2002 já participando. Então, essa de 94 realmente era um grande prazer ver o Romário jogar,

TRANSLATION

Romário is a great Brazilian icon, especially because of his achievements in the World Cup of 1994. The World Cup of 1994 is the first one I remember as a supporter. I can’t really remember the World Cup of 1990, but the one of 1994 I lived as a supporter, and then the one of 1998. I participated in the World Cup of 2002. So, it was really a great pleasure to see Romário playing,


INTERVIEW: Simoa

Portuguese Language

Messi

Neste momento, neste momento eu penso que o Messi, o Messi está num momento muito fantástico, em que ganhou tudo com o Barcelona, está a marcar muitos golos, não tem lesões, é um jogador que se vê que tem tudo, tem força, é pequeno, tem força, tem velocidade, tem dribbling, tem goal, é um jogador que neste momento qualquer adepto de futebol paga para ver


TRANSLATION

At this point, I think I’d choose Messi, Messi is going through a fantastic phase, he took it all with Barcelona, he is scoring a lot, has no injuries, he has everything, he is strong, he is small, strong, he is fast, he has got dribbling, goal, he is a player that any football lover would pay to watch

INTERVIEW: De Rossi, Italy

Italian Language

Zidane

È il… fo… forse il giocatore più forte che ho incontrato…grande qualità, grande tecnica, però abbinata ad un fisico incredibile che è cosa che non dice forse nessuno di lui.. fisicamente era, era una roccia e nello stesso tempo univa a questa fisicità una qualità tecnica che non aveva nessuno



TRANSLATION

He is… likely to be the best player I have ever met… of great quality, a great technique matched to an extraordinary build, funny enough no one ever mentions that of him … but physically he was, he was a rock, and he managed to combine it with great technical skills, like nobody has ever done before.


INTERVIEW: Josmer Altidore, USA

English Language

Ronaldo

Which strikers when you think back as a young boy watching World Cup games which ones did you think “oh I want to be like him”?

I think Ronaldo, the Brazilian Ronaldo was just simply incredible when he played in the World Cup. Even when he had the injury in ’98 and still played he’s just so graceful on the ball and at the same time so potent, so dangerous and any time he could strike it’s just I think he’s, for me, you know for a lot of people, the best striker ever and I think he proved that along the way.


CLIP 2

INTERVIEW: Salomon Kalou, Ivory Coast

French Language

Johan Cruyff


I want to ask you about some past World Cup players, Johan Cruyff you never saw play obviously but just tell me about what you’ve heard about the legend of the man and the kind of man he was on the pitch?

J’ai vu… J’ai jamais vu Cruyff jouer, mais j’ai vu des cassettes de lui et je pense que… Ben, il était au même niveau que Pelé et Maradona. Je pense que c’est dans la même lignée de joueurs. Il était fascinant à voir, balle au pied. Il a une vision pas possible. Il savait tout faire avec le ballon.

TRANSLATION

I’ve never… I’ve never seen Cruyff play, but I’ve seen tapes and I think that… Well, he was in the same category as Pelé and Maradona. I think he was in this line of players. He was fascinating to watch with a ball. He had an incredible vision. He could do anything with a ball.

INTERVIEW: Michael Ballack, Germany

German Language



Ballack on Khan

Q. Tell us about a goal keepers personality and playing with Oliver Kahn.

Oliver war darüber hinaus auch einer, der die Mannschaft immer wieder vorangetrieben hat, in schwierigen Situationen Leader war, der persönlichkeit hatte, Austrahlung hatte auf das Team. Und das ist im Fussball, einem Mannschaftssport ganz, ganz wichtig, dass du solche Typen in der Mannschaft hast, dass wenn es schwierige Situationen gibt, dass die anderen Spieler dann zu denen schauen und sich an dem aufrichten können und Oliver war so ein Typ. Und deswegen glaube ich, war es toll, oder es war eine tolle Erfahrung mit ihm zusammen gespielt zu haben.

TRANSLATION

Oliver was also someone, who kept driving the team forwards, who was a leader in difficult times, who had personality and a positive effect on the team. And it is for football, a team sport, very, very important that you have people like him on your team so the other players have someone to look towards for encouragement in difficult situations. And Oliver was such a person. This is why I think it was great, or it was a great experience to be able to play with him.
INTERVIEW: Stanislav Sestak,

On Zidane


What striker did he like to watch at the World Cup when he was young and why did he like him?

Tak posledný, v poslednom období, samozrejme, sa mi najviac páčil Zinedine Zidane, pretože bol to neuveriteľný hráč. Škoda, že nemohol hrať ešte, ešte dlhšie a ozaj predvádzal veci, ktoré, ktoré boli až, až nenormálne. Teraz, dá sa povedať, že to isté Lionel Messi, keď tiež dokazuje svoju kvalitu v každom jednom zápase a úplne keď som bol ako malý,

TRANSLATION

Well, recently I, of course, liked Zinedine Zidane most because he was an incredible player. It's a shame he could not carry on playing longer. He showed things which were indeed almost unreal. Now, I would say, the same applies to Lionel Messi as he also proves his quality in every single match.

INTERVIEW: Zinedine Zidane, France



Golden Ball Winner: 2006

French Language


Q. Tell us about the adidas Golden Ball award and its importance.

Zidane 6 - French:

Le fait de gagner l'adidas Golden Ball pour la Coupe du Monde en fait c'est ce que rêve en fait un joueur de foot. En premier c'est de jouer une Coupe du Monde, c'est de pouvoir faire une Coupe du Monde et après c'est de pouvoir la gagner et ensuite c'est individuellement il peut y avoir un récompense comme celle ci, comme j'ai pu l'avoir en 2006. C'est vrai que c'est un grand souvenir même si a un moment donné on a discuté cela par rapport à ce que j'avais fait. Le fait de me l'avoir donnée m'a fait beaucoup de bien. Je trouve que d'être meuilleur joueur d'une Coupe du Monde c'est pas donné à tout le monde, c'est un travail qui est difficile et on se dit qu'à un moment donné on est pratiquement le meilleur joueur du monde. Même si moi je ne me l'intégrait pas parce que...on ne va pas jouer jouer sur les mots mais quelque part on se dit: "Je suis fier d'avoir fait ca".

TRANSLATION

Zidane 6 - English:

Winning the adidas Golden Ball for a World Cup is what a football player dreams of. First, it is to just play in a World Cup and then maybe to win it. And after that, on a personal note, you can get an award like this one which I won in 2006. It is true that it is a great souvenir/memory even if for a moment there was some discussion around it because of what I had done. The fact that they gave it to me did me a lot of good. Being voted best player of a World Cup does not happen to everybody, it is a very difficult piece of work and you say to yourself that at a certain point in time you are practically the best player in the world even if at that time I could not realize it....ok, I don't want to play with words but at some point I can say to myself: "I am proud to have achieved that!"

INTERVIEW: Oliver Khan, Germany

Golden Ball Winner: 2002

German Language

TRANSLATION

It is often said that best goalkeepers are best goalkeepers and not necessarily best players so for me when this occurred this was an absolutely extraordinary event not only to be nominated as the best goalkeeper but also to receive the golden ball I think that there was abit of luck on my side aswell that the big teams like France with their top players like Zidane had fallen away.

INTERVIEW: Franz Beckenbauer, Former German player and Manager

Mario Kempes he was a real striker he was a goal scorer, he was a fantastic player and he deserve of course 78 because he was the leading goal scorer at this tournament and he deserved the Golden Ball.

INTERVIEW: Carlos Alberto Parriera, Coach South Africa

Q. Bobby Charlton?

He was a perfect player a complete player, a play maker the one who really gave balance and stability to co-ordinate the team. They had two players in the midfield, Nobby Styles and Bobby Charlton Noby Styles was the holding midfield player and Bobby Charlton was the playmaker of the team.
INTERVIEW: Christian Karembeu, FIFA Technical Committee member

Q. What do the ten 2010 golden Ball nominees have in common?

They have a lot in common they are all players who have guided their team to victory, sometimes through leadership, some times through shouting the team into position, but all by making good actions and being a role model, for a good spirit of fair play.
CLIP

INTERVIEW: Fernando Hierro, Former Spanish International

Q. Xavi?

I think is a player of an extraordinary level.

A player who start to compete for the Golden ball and for the FIFA World player

Possibly the best player will come from the winner team.

Hopefully the trophy will be win for on of our players, this will mean we had won.

In the world there are many good players.

But I think Spanish national team has good opportunities and with a bit of luck and doing things well It could be possible he would be the best player in the tournament.

INTERVIEW: Ruud Gullit, Former Dutch International

Q. Wesley Sneijder?

I think for a small man he is quite strong he exceptional with both feet, left and right he takes corners with both that you don’t see very often he is extremely mobile he can turn around on himself very easily same way as Xavi and Iniesta does and what I like about him is before he gets the ball he is already thinking about how can I put the ball forward, to damage the opposition and that is the thing that makes him so strong.

INTERVIEW: Ruud Gullit, Former Dutch International

Q. Xavi?


I think he is like a director of an orchestra I think if he doesn’t play well than Spain or Barcelona doesn’t play well. He rarely passes the ball to the opposition and they rarely intercept his passes. So if he completes all those passes then the whole team is working and he is the center of that team.
CLIP

INTERVIEW: Kalusha Bwalya, FIFA Technical Committee member

Q. How do you select the 10 nominees?

It is difficult because we are sitting with 15 people and everybody looks at different players and then we bring them together and then we have to say look, what influenced this players heart, on the game and in this tournament or a particular match there is always going to be a lot of debate. But in this one we have had, not like in the past, in this one we have had 6 or 7 players that everybody agreed on. For the rest we had to look because there was many candidates because of the games that had been played. Especially with the first round having been so tactical with people wanting to go through to the 2nd round, maybe the players were reserved maybe the coaches were there is a lot more pressure on the players today because everything they are doing in preparation we know what they are doing and so do the other teams. So the individuals came out and played on the filed and we were very happy to nominate those we have although maybe there could have been other players who should have be named in this tournament the standard was very very high but I think we have got it right this time.
