In my opinion the player who really impressed was Schweinsteiger of Germany,I am 65 years of age and I am having a job,trying to think of any player who mad such an impression on me.

as usual with cup finals , play was absorbed with tactics and i have to say , spain were very patient .from a fans point of view the game was a boring advert, of all the wonderful, skillful, players that was on display.there were lots of individual skill coupled with great composure.i am very happy for both countries they deserved to be in the finals.thank you , netherlands and spain.long live 2010 in sa

I agree with most it tbh, might not play the best football but it would get the result at the end of the day, mark van bommel is dirty player but because of him spain couldnt play well so i can see why he would be in the team, and klose is a class striker prolfic at world cups

my best 11: casillas, ramos, puyol (heart of spains defence), lucio, lahm, sneijder, iniesta, xavi, scweinsteiger, villa, forlan second best 11: stekelenburg/eduardo, maicon, friedrich, lugano, coentrao, mueller, khedira,robinho (outstanding for brazil), ozil, klose, messi (who i am not a fan of as commentators talk him up better than he is, flops in massive big games such as inter milan semi final last season and germany in the quarters there are more occasions as well though is talented, voted worlds best player so has to be included as i was stuck for another outstanding performer) in regards to mick turnball, forlan won palyer of the tournament a great world cup every1 talks bout sneijder carried holland well forlan was uruguay

Casillas Lahm. Pique, Mathijsen, Coentrao Schweinsteiger Inesta, Sneijder Muller Villa Forlan

I have to agree with some of the comments I've seen made by others. Eduardo did deserve a bit of mention for being an outstanding keeper, if it wasn't for him Spain would've beaten Portugal 5-0 or so. Van Bommel is also a surprise pick when Sneijder deserves a lot of credit for Holland's progress. I wouldn't mind putting Van Bommel and De Jong on the field to play the all blacks in rugby but the top XI should be pro-football players as opposed to the anti-football the dutch showed in the final.

Gerry Larkin (Celtic fan) says...

Don't agree with your team Alan. I would go with Eduardo, Ramos, Lucio, Puyol, Lahm, Inesta,Sneijder,Xavi, Messi, Villa,Muller. Subs forlan, robben, coentrao,schweinstieger, maicon. I would be very happy with that squad at Celtic. Hail Hail

Brady Dodd (Liverpool fan) says...

I'm actually quite suprised that Mesut Ozil of Germany didn't make this team. He was outstanding throughout the tournament and didn't show any weaknesses throughout. Same as Steven Gerrard, he showed inspiration and passion in a wretched England side, just like a skipper should! Keiyuke Honda of Japan also did amazingly. He plays for a small club, VV Venlo I think, and was never heard of before the World Cup now he's a hero in Japan all of a sudden, he's an Asian Ronaldo!

how you could put van Bommel with this soccer players, every game I saw in the WC he should be sent off, it is in insult to have him with them or to call him a soccer player.

Sam James (Arsenal fan) says...

Cesar, Micon, Lucio, Puyol, Lahm, Sneider, melo, xazi, Iniesta, Villa and muller, The first three have been the best in their position all season while the others all shined at the tournement and melo adds a sstrong mid-field presents and likes a tackle

i dont think this lad know much about football to be honest. for him 2 say that man utd fans were surprised by forlan is wrong. mvb in the team is wrong. sneijder should be in there and also muller. and how can he leave out xavi .................

Blair Johnson (Everton fan) says...

Ryan Nelsen was superb for New Zealand - who only conceded two goals - one of which was offside and the other a ridiculous penalty. Hail Lord Nelsen ... and Mark Paston in goal for the Kiwis was superb too. Future pub quiz question ... who were the only unbeaten team at the 2010 World Cup? Answer (amazing as it might be) ... New Zealand!
