Adidas Can Write The Future, Nike Cannot

Adidas went with Lionel Messi and David Villa. The former is a heavy candidate, if not favorite, for the Golden Ball and David Villa is joint-leader for top scorer (with Higuain and Vittek at 4) – an award conveniently sponsored by adidas – and just as importantly, still playing. They also might have predicted a semifinal, with Argentina needing to beat Germany and Spain to slip past Paraguay for the semifinal of speed.

On the other hand, every single main star of Nike’s Write The Future ad is now out of the tournament
Didier Drogba : Broken arm before the tournament; crashed out in the groups.
Fabio Cannavaro: First round exit; tainted his legacy with a pretty mediocre showing in central defense; added injury to insult by retiring to Dubai.
Franck Ribery: First round exit; may or may not have called Yoann Gourcuff names and/or punched him in his pretty face.
Wayne Rooney: Quarterfinal thrashing by Germany and Rooney didn't even score a single goal.
Ronaldinho: Not even invited to this tournament despite having a good season with Milan.
Cristiano Ronaldo: Quarterfinal exit to Spain; out of eight World Cup halves, he showed up for most of one – when Portugal were already routing North Korea

Is Adidas much better than Nike? It's your own call..
