As we swiftly roll towards the end of the year, it’s a great time to look back on some of the best achievements in the footballing domain over the last 12 months – and where better than the summer’s World Cup in South Africa?

adidas World Cup Awards, Golden Boot, Golden Ball, Golden Glove

adidas held a ceremony last night to honour three players of the tournament, with Golden Boot for top scorer of FIFA World Cup went to Thomas Muller of Germany, the Golden Ball to Diego Forlan of Uruguay and the Golden Glove to FIFA World Cup to Iker Casillas of Spain.

We like to see adidas’ trophies for the tournaments that they’re involved in, as they always make the effort to make them resemble their latest bits of kit!

The Golden boot is a Predator_X, the Golden Ball a Jabulani and the Golden Glove a pair of Fingersaves – with great attention to detail paid to all of the trophies.

Uruguay’s Diego Forlan collects adidas Golden Ball trophy for the best player of the FIFA World Cup. Forlan netted five goals at the event and established himself as the most dangerous player on the pitch in each game he played.

FIFA World Cup winner Iker Casilas collected the adidas Golden Glove award for the best goalkeeping performance in South Africa. The Real Madrid star conceded only two goals throughout the tournament the first in Spain’s 1-0 defeat to Switzerland the other against Chile.

Thomas Muller of Germany collected the adidas Golden Boot for the top scorer of the FIFA World Cup. Muller netted five goals the same number as Diego Forlan of Uruguay, David Villa of Spain and Wesley Sneijder of the Netherlands but thanks to three assists , Muller claimed the trophy.

    ahh saw this is what this was!? my friend saw an advert for this and told me that he thought casillas has switched to adidas as according to him the ad wast just the 3 players opening up boxes and looking happy lol

    Hoping that Forlan will move to England in January so more is seen of him. Even though I do not support them, with Tevez looking out to be closer to home, a possible deal/swap?

    Well the world cup awards when to 3 unexpected players if you ask me a new young talent a top goalkeeper but not best around going into the world cup and a x manchester united player flop that has proved himself in recent years. if i had to say who would take the awards before the tournament i would say julio Cesar of italy Argentinas Lionel Messi for best player and David villa for goals but proves how unpredictable football is now.

    shocked wesley sneijder was not up there but is that to do with him wearing nikes?ghanas goalkeeper in my eyes did a bit more than casillas

    I think there are other players that were as good as Forlan during the WC, but considering that Forlan had to support the whole team by himself makes him deserve it more. The Thophy Goalscorer’s trophy has always been Preds.
