Stats Zone World Cup 2014 Team of the Tournament

Attacking midfield: Mesut Özil (GER)

There's something about Özil that inspires dislike and derogation. Perhaps it's the expectations rested upon those slumping shoulders: if the majority of communication is non-verbal, his body language during the hard times speaks volumes. 
 

But Özil was punching the air after a World Cup in which his feet had done the talking. Only Messi created more overall chances than his 17, of which only two were set-pieces. He made 365 passes, the highest of any attacking midfielder and 7th overall; an unsurpassed 210 of these were in the final third. 

He may have only recorded one assist but it's hardly his fault if his team-mates missed 16 chances he set up. Germany's team ethic took them all the way and Özil, never the attention-seeker, was happy to be one of several good players. It's something Arsene Wenger will have noticed as he continues to rebuild Arsenal with the Emirates booty.

A young painter, indulging a vein of pleasantry, sketched a kind of conversation piece, representing a bear, an owl, a monkey, http://www.louisvuitton-christmas.com and an ass; and to render Louis Vuitton Outlet it more striking, humorous, and moral, free run 2 distinguished every figure by some emblem Michael Kors store of human life. Bruin was exhibited Michael Kors handbags outlet sale in the garb and attitude of christian louboutin shoes an old, toothless, drunken soldier; the Christian Louboutin shoes online owl perched upon the handle of Christian Louboutin Shoes a coffee-pot, with spectacle on nose, Michael Kors clearance sale seemed to contemplate a newspaper; and Louis Vuitton Outlet the ass, ornamented with a huge Nike Outlet tie-wig (which, however, could not conceal http://www.louisvuitton-bags-2014.com his long ears), sat for his kate spade online sale picture to the monkey, who appeared Michael Kors outlet online sale with the implements of painting. This michael kors outlet online sale whimsical group afforded some mirth, and Michael Kors met with general approbation, until some Louis Vuitton Handbags outlet mischievous wag hinted that the whole Cheap Louis Vuitton �� was a lampoon upon the http://www.shopkatespadebags.com friends of the performer; an insinuation Christian Louboutin shoes online which was no sooner circulated than Moncler Outlet Online those very people who applauded it wholesales michael kors bags online before began to be alarmed, and Louis Vuitton Handbags even to fancy themselves signified by michael kors sunglasses purse the several figures of the piece.
Among louis vuitton outlet others, a worthy personage in years, http://www.katespadeoutletst.com who had served in the army discount Michael Kors purses with reputation, being incensed at the cheap Michael Kors handbags Supposed outrage, repaired to the lodging kate spade bags of the painter, and finding him truereligion.com at home, ��Hark ye, Mr. Monkey,�� michael kors handbags said he, ��I have a good Michael Kors outlet online store mind to convince you, that though Michael Kors shoes online the bear has lost his teeth, michael kors rose gold watch he retains his paws, and that Nike Free he is not so drunk but gucci bags he can perceive your impertinence.�� ��Sblood! http://www.michaelkorshandbags-2014.com sir, that toothless jaw is a Michael Kors handbags wholesale d �� ned scandalous libel �� http://www.michaelkorsoutletstoreonlinesale.us but don��t yon imagine me so michael kors outlet chopfallen as not to be able gucci handbags to chew the cud of resentment.�� Cheap Louis Vuitton Bags Here he was interrupted by the Michael Kors outlet handbags arrival of a learned physician, who, official true religion advancing to the culprit with fury http://www.barbourjacket.com.co in his aspect, exclaimed, ��Suppose the Christian Louboutin Shoes augmentation of the ass��s ears should Michael Kors purses prove the diminution of the baboon��s new balance outlet online �� nay, seek not to prevaricate, kate spade outlet for, by the beard of Aesculapius! Louis Vuitton Bags there is not one hair in michael kors bags on sale this periwig that will not stand kate spade new york up in judgment to convict thee http://www.moncleroutletonlineinc.com of personal abuse. Do but observe, http://www.thebagsstyle.com captain, how this pitiful little fellow http://www.louisvuitton-christmas.com has copied the very curls-the colour, Louis Vuitton Outlet indeed, is different, but then the Louis Vuitton Sunglasses form and foretop are quite similar.�� Moncler Outlet Store While he thus remonstrated in a michael kors outlet store online sale strain of vociferation, a venerable senator Michael Kors outlet entered, and waddling up to the katespade.com delinquent, ��Jackanapes!�� cried he, ��I will true religion outlet online now let thee see I can kate spade bags read something else than a newspaper, http://www.michaelkorshandbagsoutlet-store.com and that without the help of Michael Kors shoes outlet spectacles: here is your own note true religion outlet store of hand, sirrah, for money, which if I had not advanced, you yourself would have resembled an owl, in not daring to show your face by day, you ungrateful slanderous knave!��
In vain the astonished painter declared that he had no intention to give offence, or to characterise particular persons: they affirmed the resemblance was too palpable to be overlooked; they taxed him with insolence, malice, and ingratitude; and their clamours being overheard by the public, the captain was a bear, the doctor an ass, and the senator an owl, to his dying day.
Christian reader, I beseech thee, in the bowels of the Lord, remember this example ��while thou art employed in the perusal of the following sheets; and seek not to appropriate wholesale michael kors to thyself that which equally belongs to five hundred different people. If thou shouldst meet with a character that reflects thee in kate spade outlet some ungracious particular, keep thy own kate spade outlet online counsel; consider that one feature makes http://www.chevrecakes.com not a face, and that though ture religion sale thou art, perhaps, distinguished by a Michael Kors bags on sale bottle nose, twenty of thy neighbours cheap Michael Kors handbags sale may be in the same predicament.��Of High Heels all kinds of satire, there is Louis Vuitton Outlet Store none so entertaining and universally improving, http://www.nikeoutletstore-online.com as that which is introduced, as cheap new balance shoes it were occasionally, in the course nike air max of an interesting story, which brings http://www.new-balance-nb.com every incident home to life, and Louis Vuitton by representing familiar scenes in an Michael Kors handbags outlet uncommon and amusing point of view, barbour outlet store invests them with all the graces barbour outlet of novelty, while nature is appealed Michael Kors wallets to in every particular. The reader High Heel Shoes gratifies his curiosity in pursuing the Louis Vuitton Sale adventures of a person in whose michael kors satchel bags outlets favour he is prepossessed; he espouses cheap nike shoes his cause, he sympathises with him barbour.com in his distress, his indignation is michael kors hamiton heated against the authors of his Louis Vuitton Outlet Handbags calamity: the humane passions are inflamed; Michael Kors satchel bag the contrast between dejected virtue and Coach Outlet Online insulting vice appears with greater aggravation, Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet and every impression having a double michael kors outlet force on the imagination, the memory Michael Kors sandals retains the circumstance, and the heart Cheap Moncler Jackets improves by the example. The attention louis vuitton store is not tired with a bare Moncler Coats catalogue of characters, but agreeably diverted gucci handbag with all the variety of invention; michael kors outlet online sale and the vicissitudes of life appear michaelkors in their peculiar circumstances, opening an Moncler Outlet Online ample field for wit and humour.
Romance, michael kors tote no doubt, owes its origin to http://www.christianlouboutinoutletwow.com ignorance, vanity, and superstition. In the Louis Vuitton Handbags dark ages of the World, when Kate Spade Handbags a man had rendered himself famous ## for wisdom or valour, his family truereligion.com and adherents availed themselves of his Cheap Moncler Jackets superior qualities, magnified his virtues, and Kate Spade Outlet Online represented his character and person as michael kor shoes outlet online.com sacred and supernatural. The vulgar easily true religion jeans swallowed the bait, implored his protection, Michael Kors purse outlet and yielded the tribute of homage Michael Kors Handbags sale and praise, even to adoration; his http://www.nikeoutlet-hot.com exploits were handed down to posterity http://www.findcheapmichaelkorsbag.com with a thousand exaggerations; they were Michael Kors bags wholesale repeated as incitements to virtue; divine http://www.2014michaelkorswatches.com honours were paid, and altars erected michael kors watches for men to his memory, for the encouragement kate spade online sale of those who attempted to imitate Michael Kors handbags his example; and hence arose the cheap nike shoes heathen mythology, which is no other Michael Kors green purse than a collection of extravagant romances. cheap nba jerseys As learning advanced, and genius received new balance shoes outlet cultivation, these stories were embellished with christian louboutin shoes the graces of poetry, that they cheap Michael Kors bags usa might the better recommend themselves to katespade.com the attention; they were sung in nba jerseys public, at festivals, for the instruction cheap Michael Kors outlet and delight of the audience; and kate spade store online rehearsed before battle, as incentives to http://www.michaelkorshandbagsoutlet-store.com deeds of glory. Thus tragedy and Michael Kors handbags outlet online store the epic muse were born, and, new balance sale in the progress of taste, arrived LV outlet at perfection. It is no wonder Louis Vuitton that the ancients could not relish http://www.themercyseller.com a fable in prose, after they Louis Vuitton Bags had seen so many remarkable events gucci bag celebrated in verse by their best michael kors hamilton tote poets; we therefore find no romance nba jerseys online sale among them during the era of http://www.truereligionoutletrst.com their excellence, unless the Cyropaedia of Louis Vuitton Outlet Store Xenophon may be so called; and Michael Kors outlet handbags it was not till arts and Michael Kors outlet stores sciences began to revive after the new balance outlet online irruption of the barbarians into Europe, gucci outlet that anything of this kind appeared. gucci purses But when the minds of men christian louboutin online were debauched by the imposition of Kate Spade Outlet priestcraft to the most absurd pitch christian louboutin online of credulity, the authors of romance michael kors bags arose, and losing sight of probability, http://www.cheapmichaelkorscolorpurses.us filled their performances with the most find cheap michael kors bag monstrous hyperboles. If they could not http://www.shopmoncleroutlet.com equal the ancient poets in point Michael Kors Black Friday Sale of genius. they were resolved to michaelkors excel them in fiction, and apply michael kor shoes outlet online.com to the wonder, rather than the Kate Spade Outlet judgment, of their readers. Accordingly, they kate spade outlet brought necromancy to their aid, and Michael Kors outlet clearance instead of supporting the character of newbalance.com their heroes by dignity of sentiment louis vuitton and practice, distinguished them by their http://www.louisvuittonoutletyears.com bodily strength, activity, and extravagance of Michael Kors outlet stores behaviour. Although nothing could be more Cheap Louis Vuitton Bags ludicrous and unnatural than the figures Moncler Outlet they drew, they did not want Michael Kors Handbags patrons and admirers; and the world michael kors outlet online sale actually began to be infected with cheap Michael Kors watches the spirit of knight-errantry, when Cervantes, michael kors watches on sale by an inimitable piece of ridicule, michael kors watches reformed the taste of mankind, representing true religion factory outlet chivalry in the right point of michal kors purse outlet view, and converting romance to purposes Michael Kors watches for men far more useful and entertaining, by http://www.myfashiontruereglion.com making it assume the sock, and Michael Kors outlet online sale point out the follies of ordinary nike free run life.
The same method has been practised michael kors outlet online by other Spanish and French authors, cheap michael kors handbags hot sales and by none more successfully than Louis Vuitton purses by Monsieur Le Sage, who, in kate spade new york his Adventures of Gil Blas, has Moncler Outlet described the knavery and foibles of Coach Outlet Online life, with infinite humour and sagacity. michael kors handbags wholesale The following sheets I have modelled christian louboutin outlet online on his plan, taking me liberty, Cheap Moncler Jackets however, to differ from him in Michael Kors sunglasses the execution, where I thought his http://www.louisvuitton-newlv.com particular situations were uncommon, extravagant, or Kate Spade New York peculiar to the country in which Michael Kors watch sale the scene is laid. The disgraces http://www.newbalancefactory-outlet.com of Gil Blas are, for the http://www.michaelkorshandbagsoutletcheap.com most part, such as rather excite Nike Outlet Online mirth than compassion; he himself laughs owner michael kors black Friday at them; and his transitions from Michael Kors outlet sale distress to happiness, or at least Kate Spade Bags ease, are so sudden, that neither michael kors hamilton satchel the reader has time to pity http://www.freerunsport.com him, nor himself to be acquainted Michael Kors outlet purses with affliction. This conduct, in my christian louboutin outlet opinion, not only deviates from probability, Christian Louboutin online store but prevents that generous indignation, which Coach Outlet Store Online ought to animate the reader against Christian Louboutin Outlet Store the sordid and vicious disposition of Coach Outlet Store the world. I have attempted to http://www.michaelkorsoutletonlinest.com represent modest merit struggling with every Louis Vuitton Outlet Handbags difficulty to which a friendless orphan LV outlet is exposed, from his own want Moncler Outlet of experience, as well as from cheap Michael Kors wallets the selfishness, envy, malice, and base true religion jeans indifference of mankind. To secure a kate spade new york favourable prepossession, I have allowed him Louis Vuitton Outlet Online the advantages of birth and education, authentic michael kors handbags which in the series of his nike free run 2 misfortunes will, I hope, engage the http://www.louisvuitton-bags-2014.com ingenuous more warmly in his behalf; christian louboutin outlet online and though I foresee, that some http://www.michaelkorsoutletonlinestoresaleus.com people will be offended at the Christian Louboutin Outlet mean scenes in which he is Louis Vuitton Bags involved, I persuade myself that the Michael Kors handbags outlet stores judicious will not only perceive the http://www.michaelkorshandbags-2014.com necessity of describing those situations to christian louboutin outlet which he must of course be wholesale nba jerseys confined, in his low estate, but High Heel Shoes also find entertainment in viewing those cheap michael kors color purses parts of life, where the humours Michael Kors online outlet and passions are undisguised by affectation, michael kors outlet online store sale us ceremony, or education; and the whimsical http://www.katespadeoutletst.com peculiarities of disposition appear as nature louis vuitton handbags has implanted them. But I believe Michael Kors outlet store I need not trouble myself in Louis Vuitton vindicating a practice authorized by the true religion brand jeans best writers in this way, some Michael Kors handbags on sale of whom I have already named katespade.com
