FC Barcelona are the new World Champions after claiming the 2015 FIFA World Cup title in Japan. They beat Guangzhou Evergrande in the semifinal and won against River Plate in the final. Luis Suarez was named the best player of the tournament, as he was fundamental for securing another cup for Barça in 2015. The Uruguayan showed once again his might and scored 5 goals in these two games. Anthony Modeste (1. FC Köln) – Nike Mercurial Vapor X

Leicester City continues to make the headlines in England. The Foxes are still atop of the league table, something very interesting if you know that they were last exactly one year ago. Thay have built a great team, but no one shines as bright as Riyad Mahrez, an Algerian winger who has taken the Premier League by storm with his talent and elegant play. He has set up 7 goals and scored 13, impressive numbers at this point of the season. James Rodriguez (Real Madrid) – adidas Ace 15

There was a lot of fuss about Real Madrid’s most recent game. The reason? an incredible 10-2 win against Rayo Vallecano. The referee had some influence on the game, with a doubtful penalty kick and a subsequent red card that favored Madrid when they were losing and not looking very well in front of their people. The stars acted like professionals and didn’t hold back during the game, and James Rodriguez assisted his teammates three times of those ten before being subbed by coach Rafa Benitez around the 60th minute.

Alvaro Negredo was out for a few weeks due to injury, and is making a slow return to the fields. A Copa del Rey game against a lower division team was the perfect set for Negredo to test his progress, and he did fine, scoring a goal after months without finding the rival nets. His return is good news for Valencia, who aim to finish as up as possible in La Liga and have a good performance in the Europa League, where they’ll face Rapid Wien in the Round of 32.
