BBC Sports Website allows their visitors to rate players during the match.
To have an idea on how other people think of the player's performance for the whole tournament, I colledcted the match rating the Golden Ball candidates received on match by match basis.

Visitors gave their Rating based on the following scale:
10: Pure Perfection
09: Outstanding
08: Very Good
07: Good
06: Average
05: Off Color
04: Poor
03: Woeful
02: Embarrassingly Bad
01: Give up the Game

The match-by-match rating of the player's performance are as follows:
Players
