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 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!
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.
