Mondragon is a great name really; sounds like (and reminds me of) Pendragon (of Merlin) to me. The 2014 FIFA World Cup is here at last! Bring it on!!

i maybe biased but what about Tim Cahill. 3rd WC for Australia and all round good guy. Also he is pretty handy with his head !!

It strikes me that you could have had a midfield of Gerrard, Pirlo, Lampard and Xavi. But you don't.

magico gonzalez, Buffon didn't play in '98. Your point still stands that it's an amazing achievement all the same. On a different note, I was oh so pleasantly surprised to find an F365 article mentioning Pirlo without gushing about his looks/beard. A big well done to Adam Bate for not resorting to the en vogue pseudo-bisexuality.

Must be my "unique" brain but any time I see Klose's name I just think of C3PO yelling "Klose?!" as the Han decides he's going closer to "one of the big ones"

@stevenjameshyde - I think you're spot on - didn't Forlan win the Golden Ball as player of the tournament?

I suspect you'll get a lot of these, but Thomas Muller won the Golden Boot four years ago. Forlan was joint top scorer (along with David Villa and Wesley Sneijder), but Muller won on assists

No matter what is their club form but Klose and Podolski always get picked up for national team and always deliver..

Great article and great keeper. Worth noting however that a certain Gigi Buffon is about to play his 5th World Cup
