Not an Englishman in sight…
David Villa, Spain - Didn't have a great final but until then was tied with Forlan as the tournament's most valuable player. So dangerous in and around the box, he really had to up his game with partner Fernando Torres so off colour. Barcelona will be a scary prospect next season.
That lot would have to be managed by Spain gaffer Vicente Del Bosque, who did a superb job in getting a bunch of world-class players to play like world-class players.
Honourable mentions: Iker Casillas, Maicon, Philipp Lahm, Diego Lugano, Jorge Fucile, Arne Friedrich, Anthony Annan, Mesut Ozil, Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Miroslav Klose
