I would go with:

Muller, James Rodriguez, Pogba, Messi
Neymar, Van Persie

Enner Valencia is a very close third for that 2nd striker spot for me.
I would delete a couple and add Schweinsteiger and Robben

Oops yes it was Forlan. Forlan deserved it.

Messi is questionable but to be fair at least he scored 4 goals and he played well the first games. I didn't like his attitude during the award ceremony. At all.

Maybe if Robben hadn't dived so often he would have gotten the Golden Ball. I would have preferred Robben winning this award even with his diving. He is not a sore loser and played well every game.

Robben deserves something regardless of the diving. The man was a relentless beast who wouldn't stop until he achieved victory. I love watching the guy, I could care less about his diving. When you give him the ball he floors it until he scores.

I have nothing but a strong admiration for the German team. Many may ask, why would you, after that humiliating 7x1 loss? Well, even the most optimist Brazilian knows that soccer is not made of only glories, there had been other roadblocks in the past too and losing is part of makes us learn and come back stronger. We always turned around. The Germans chose not mock us for that loss and showed an enormous respect and sympathy.While that is very noble, and I admit I can never expect the same charm from our South America neighbors, no offense. But my admiration comes to how they embraced our people and culture. For those who don't know, they built their own hotel and training facility, hired poor locals that need the money to work there, interacted with the people, and donated the facility for the creation of a school when they left. People are already missing the players who also loved the food and were posting pictures with the locals and writing in Portuguese on social media. Podolsky left the hotel with a Flamengo shirt, the club with the largest number of fans base in the country. A great example of charisma for the world to see. Come back to see us again!
