"Schweinsteiger has come off as one of the nicest players on the field when the match ends as well. After beating Portugal he was seen hugging Cristiano Ronaldo. He did the same to Karim Benzema and David Luiz. He even hugged Luiz Felipe Scolari after the beat down of Brazil. He ran right up to Messi at the end of the final” - Rant Sport

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince ϟ: She’s only interested in you because she thinks you’re the chosen one. But I am the chosen one.

What makes it so beautiful is that even without that gold medal around his neck, Bastian Schweinsteiger is a champion in all senses of the word. The great man’s courage, intensity and above all keen sense of sportsmanship make him the ideal role model for any aspiring footballer. His story so far is a testament to the success that can be garnered from practicing the art of adaptability and perseverance. There has never been a World Cup winner more deserving of the honour than the young man from Kolbermoor, who had once wanted to ski all day on the mountains of Bavaria. Bastian Schweinsteiger, you beauty, take a bow.

"Football is a lot like chess. You have the same number of pieces as your opponent, you face-off on the same playing surface and you both have the same aim. The great chess players know they need to get the most out of each of their pieces to win. This gives rise to the maxim: "The King is a fighting piece – use it." With the king being the weakest and most important piece on the board, it would seem logical to ignore the maxim and do nothing but protect him at all times. But if you are to do that and your opponent uses their king as an attacking piece, essentially your opponent has one more piece than you. In tight games, against similar opposition, this small advantages can be the difference between victory and defeat. Neuer is not only a world-class goalkeeper, but he is a footballer as well. In the sweeper-keeper role he is more than just a net guard. His defensive skills, covering any through balls and sweeping up behind his back line, allow the defenders to push forward. This in turn restricts the space the opposition have in the middle of the pitch and forces the game into the opposition’s half.”
