:grin:

Let me start the guess

Messi: If Argentina win the cup.

Ozil: If Germany win the cup.

David Villa: If Spain win the cup.

Roben: If Netherlands win the cup.

Forlan: If Uruguay win the cup.

I think it is safe to say that Messi is out of contention. :-)
He gets a boot - and I am not sure it is golden in colour either.

Will not be Robben. He is good but there are other contenders in this WC. Even in his own team, Sneijder's credentials are stronger.
And anyway Netherlands are not going to win the Cup.

If it is a German, it is more like to be Klose than Ozil.

Forlan's credentials are strong too but I think it is going to be Villa.
Because I think Spain is going to win the Cup - and this guy is going to continue to score.
He has been just fantastic.
Without him Spain would have been dumped long back.

What about goalkeeper???????

In this tournament none of the keepers showed extra ordinary performance. In 2002 Kahn (GER) & in 2006 Buffon (ITA) was extra ordinary. According to name Casilas (ESP) is good but not extra ordinary performer of the tournament. I think after all this award will go to the keeper of champion team.

True .......... no real outstanding keeping performances. The trouble is that there has been very little pressure put on the top teams. Casillas, Neuer etc have gone who;le games with no shots on target against them.

The Dutch keeper has been solid, and Casillas did make a vital penalty save when needed in the QF.
