The media and most fans believes that ronaldo was the symbol of brazil´s glory in 2002. he was the top scorer of the tournament and had a wonderful return after his injuries. on the other hand, the coach luiz felipe scolari always said that rivaldo was the best player of the tournament. Scolari said that rivaldo was the keyplayer of the team and the technical leader in the hard moments during the matches.
the stats:
Ronaldo: 8 goals
Rivaldo:5 goals, 3 assists

Rivaldo for me. The goal against England and both plays in the final. His play on the second goal is something that only a great can pull of in a final. He sealed it with that play.. ronaldo only had to finish

When the tough got going it was him that normaly turned things around:thumbsup:

Even Ronado has admitted more than once that Rivado was better than him in that word cup :)

Rivaldo's performance is all the more remarkable when you remember he was carrying a knock throughout the tournament from that terrible injury he suffered against Turkey. :)

Being the better player in a word cup tournament is more than just scoring goals. Otherwise teh top scorer of every world cup would automatically be the best payer.

In 2002 Klose scored a bunch of goals, but it was his goalie voted teh best player (unfair to me, specialy because of his blunders in the final)

Yes, technically he has 8, but he scored 7 of them. :)

Was checking some stats of the 2002 WC, and Byron Moreno got the best rating out of the referees. :howler: Another reminder statistics aren't everything.
ofcourse IFFHS had Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the top 10 playmaker:eekani:
that side has made more laughs than Pele or Maradona, ridiculous method of making list.
