Very pleasantly surprised to see Diego Forlan win the Golden Ball Award for most Outstanding Player in the tournament. He did absolutely everything for Uruguay. Sneijder and Villa were 2nd and 3rd respectively.
Thomas Mueller wins the Golden Boot in a tie breaker. His three assists gave him the edge over Villa, Sneijder, and Forlan all of whom had one apiece. He also kept the Best Young Player award in Germany for another four years.
Casillas won Best Goalkeeper.
They haven't release the all tournament team yet, but based off the format they used in 2006 (3 goalies, 7 defenders, 9 mids, and 4 forwards) here is mine...
GK: Casillas (Spain), Stekelenburg (Netherlands), Eduardo (Portugal)
D: Puyol (Spain), Pique (Spain), Lugano (Uruguay), Lahm (Germany), Contrao (Portugal), Mensah (Ghana), Von Bronckhorst (Netherlands)
M: Iniesta (Spain), Xavi (Spain), Sneijder (Netherlands), Mueller (Germany), Schweinsteiger (Germany), Oezil (Germany), Messi (Argentina), Donovan (United States), Honda (Japan)
F: Forlan (Uruguay), Villa (Spain), Vittek (Slovakia), Klose (Germany)

Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
