FIFA continues to receive harsh criticism following the selection of the best player in the World Cup matches. Today in the match between the Netherlands and Senegal, Frankie de Jong received the award, in a selection that caused an uproar in his country. Among other things, it was written: "Did anyone see that Aner Valencia was on the field?", in other media it was written : "Choose only by name".
As you may remember, Kevin de Bruyne, a Belgian player who also won the award after not impressing in his team's game against Canada, said at the end: "I don't think I played well, I feel they chose me because of my name."
Kevin De Bruyne on being named player of the match:
"I don't think I played a great game. I don't know why I got the trophy. Maybe it's because of my name."

Another puzzling choice was Cristiano Ronaldo who won the award after Portugal's victory.
According to the reports, the elections are made for political and economic considerations of the world's largest football organization, and fans around the world have a lot of criticism on the subject.
Marca was harshly criticized: "The photographers chased Cristiano at the end, and he was the one who also received the title of MVP, without even playing well. The one who led Portugal was Bruno Fernandez."
