Lionel Messi collects the Golden Ball award, while Manuel Neuer is named the best goalkeeper of the 2014 World Cup.

Lionel Messi, Manuel Neuer, and Paul Pogba were all named as award winners on Sunday night as the World Cup finished with a victory for Germany in the Maracana.

An extra-time winner from Mario Gotze secured a fourth title for the Germans, but there was some consolation for Argentina and Messi as the Barcelona forward was handed the Golden Ball for the best player of the tournament.

Messi played a crucial role in Argentina's run to the final, scoring four goals and providing one assist for Alejandro Sabella's side.

Germany's shot-stopper Neuer was recognised for his impressive performances with the Golden Glove award, with his four clean sheets being a key factor behind the triumph.

Pogba, meanwhile, fought off competition from France teammate Raphael Varane and Memphis Depay, who impressed as the Netherlands reached the last four before being beaten by Argentina on penalties, to win the Young Player Award.
