People call George Best and Ryan Giggs "greats"

neither played a World Cup game.

No he is not overrated, he does not have the same impact for Argentina because he plays centrally, his game is about dribbling, which you need space to utilize, the center of the pitch is the most congested place you can play, its that simple, he is not your stereo typical number 10, like a Diego, he needs to play wide left where he can cut in and be more direct with his attacks.

But they are "greats" in a different kind of way. Two of the best british players we will ever see, I wasnt saying Messi needs to win a world cup to become great. I just think he is abit overrated, but that's not to say he isnt a brilliant player. I consider him to be the best player in the world right now, But I think he has alot of work to do to make that real elite level of Top 5/Top 10 players ever. But he still has plenty of time.

Messi overrated????

First mistake in this world cup is that maradona pretty much put him in a free position. As soon as he touched the ball he had two on top and a third one as soon as he moved. He needed someone to set up the plays with/for him and maradona didn't provide that. Messi IS a great player and one of the best all time. Time will show that

He is easily the best player in world.

Easily.

Players fail for their national teams for a number of reasons.

This isn't basketball. There are 22 men on that field.
