Thomas Muller has been rewarded for an excellent World Cup campaign by being named the tournament's best young player and also winning the golden boot.

Muller's 5 goals and 2 assists in South Africa saw the young Bayern Munich attacker finish with the golden boot ahead of David Villa of Spain, Diego Forlan of Uruguay and Wesley Schneider of Holland who all had 5 goals but fewer assists. 
He also won the young player award by beating players such as Giovani dos Santos of Mexico, Andre Ayew of Ghana and team mate Mesut Ozil.

The 20-year-old, who had missed the semi-final defeat by Spain through suspension, was a key figure in Germany finishing third in the World Cup.

He scored a brace in the last 16 thrashing of England, opened the scoring in the quarter-final mauling of Argentina and repeated the trick in the third-placed play-off win over Uruguay.

"The honour will be with me for all time," said Muller.
"It's a terrific confirmation of the work I've put in over the last year, and it's a huge honour to be part of a group including the likes of Beckenbauer and Pele."
