Game previews, plus expert insights and exclusive commentary from the Belfast Telegraph sports team.

Using a custom-made computer programme, social media will be monitored throughout each game in order to detect the most dramatic comments.

Commentary from the official World Cup live feed will then be etched onto the award for the recipient to keep.

It will happen in super quick time too, as the completed trophy, which features a sculptural origami design inspired by the work of Professor Jun Mitani, will be presented to the Player of the Match straight after their star performance.
