Cristiano Ronaldo v Fernando Torres (Group A)
(Group A: Cristiano Ronaldo, Fernando Torres, Dani Alves, Luka Modric)
So, the first tie of Pies’ “Best Player in the World” World Cup, and it’s a belter. C-Ron is undoubtedly one of the pre-tournament favourites, but Nando Torres – no slouch himself – could spring a surprise in the opener.
Vote below for your winner…


I didn’t want to make this too complicated, so you can vote for whichever player you think is better, or if you think it’s too close to call, vote for a draw. I really wanna see those fingers…
