Position Forward
Spain/Deportivo La Coruna
The competition’s top scorer with five goals and a worthy winner of the Golden Boot. Always on the move, with icy nerves in front of goal, a product of the youth system at Real Oviedo, he joined Depor at the age of 18.

Position Midfielder
Iceland/Viking (Nor)
After two impressive displays as a substitute, coach Eyjolfur Sverrisson started him in the final group game against Denmark, where he repaid that faith with an assist and a headed goal in his side’s 3-1 win.

Position Defender
Denmark/Ajax (Hol)

Few of the under-par Danes lived up to their tag of the “The Chosen Ones”. An honourable exception, however, was the left-back, whose composure and elegance shone out for all to see. Equally at home in central defence.

Position Goalkeeper
Despite being caught out by Thiago’s stunning 40-yard free-kick in the Final, Switzerland’s captain should nevertheless be proud of his overall contribution in Denmark, where he was responsible to a large degree for his side’s wonderful defensive record of only two goals conceded in five games.

Andrei VoronkovAndrei Voronkov

Age 22 (08.02.88)
Position Forward
Belarus/Dynamo Kyiv (Ukr)

Tall, intelligent and unflinching striker whose desire to make a splash was evident from first to last. And how he succeeded, supplying half of Belarus’ total goal tally (two out of four) as his side swept to a surprising third place. Already a full international.
