Germany midfielder Julian Draxler was named the Player of the Tournament after captaining the European giants to their first Confederations Cup triumph ever.

The 23-year-old scored one goal and assisted another to help Die Mannschaft lift the trophy in Russia.

Draxler became the first German to claim the Golden Ball, replacing Neymar, who won the individual award in Brazil in 2013.

The PSG star became only the third non-Brazilian to lift the individual trophy – the others being Robert Pires in 2001 and Thierry Henry in 2003.

The Selecao players who won it are Denilson (1997), Ronaldinho (1999), Adriano (2005) and Kaka (2009).

Hat off to Germany, they know what they are doing, they do it in a Germany's way, their squad that won them 2014 has been scraped, am very impressed by the young Squad, surely Germany did not expect them to win the tournament, I believe to them winning the tournament is a bonus. we can expect them to defend their world cup. they have a German coach that shows that they trust themselves.
