Larry David says...

Actually, Xavi wasn't _that_ good in this tournament. Ozil should've been in the team.

John Wentzel says...

Lucio did nothing in this tournament and Arne Friedrich was miles ahead of Puyol and any other defender.

i would have preferred inesta to xavi due to his creativity in the midfield, also the likes of messi should at least make bench, bcos he is one of the outstanding player in this tournament.

if you chossr lucio over puyol, there is something wrong, Puyol is a strong, clean, stable defender, lucio catches shirts, push, pull, do anything but clean football, watch again, inter vs chelsea.

Instead Neuer, Lucio, Lahm and Schweinsteiger I would put in line up Casillas, Lugano, Iniesta and Van Bronckhorst.

Ollie O'brien says...

Surely youd have iniesta there he is the best player in the world and just because of his performance in the final he should be there instead of xavi

Oliver Ingham says...

I think after Iker Casillas' performance last night, I don't know how you can put Manuel Neuer in there, on top of the fact that he admitted he conned the ref when Lampard scored the none-goal, also Xavi hasn't been at his best, I think the World Cup winner Iniesta would have been a better inclusion.

Alex Norberg says...

Maybe a bit harsh not to pick Casilias in goal. Not a single goal conceded in the knockout-stage and couple of vital saves in the final. Included also a very important penalty-save against Chile, He should be the automatic chose between the posts.

James Carrani (Manchester City fan) says...

Yes i think i agree i thought that maybe carlos puyol should be in there instead of pique . in my opinion Iniesta had a better tournement than xavi i thought he was crucial in every attack spain had .

Jamie Chaffers says...

Phillip Lahm played Right Back all tournament, so personally i'd have picked Fabio Coentrao
