    Here's my best 11 from the tournament...

    GK: Casillas, ended tournament with no goals for last 433 minutes of play.

    RB: Sergio Ramos, constantly posed an attacking threat while still getting back and playing excellent defense

    CB: Lucio, great and powerful defender, even had skill to push forward on many occasions

    CB: Carles Puyol, always hard worker, saved Spain on many occasions, best center back of the tournament, game winner against germany that sent spain through

    LB: Phillip Lahm, provided leadership and skill for germany playing left back, constantly pushing forward and threatening in the attack

    CM: Xavi, created more goal scoring opportunities than any other player by far, kept his cool when spain at times looked like they could lose it, was never rattled.

    CM: Bastian Schwiensteiger, real leader for germany, superb skill and great defensive play, was the glue that kept the german side together

    CM: Wesley Sneijder, dutch master, scored five goals from the midfield, single-handedly beat brazil in a way only Zidane was able to do back in 2006

    LW: David Villa, Spain's attacking force, scored five of the most important goals in spain's soccer history

    RW: Thomas Müller, only 20 years of age and won best young player and the golden boot, the future looks bright for Múller and Germany, the next rudi völler? possibly.

    ST: Diego Forlán, carried uruguay to the semifinals, scored five goals of beauty. shone far brighter than most other stars coming in to the tournament.
