A star since childhood, Thomas Muller is a versatile attacking midfielder who also has the speed and creativity to play as a forward. Muller became known to much of the world in 2010, where (wearing Michael Ballack’s #13 jersey), Muller scored five goals during Germany’s 3rd-place finish and becoming known as emblematic of the exciting new brand of soccer played by a younger German squad. Muller finished the World Cup as a co-winner of the Golden Boot and a nominee for the FIFA Ballon d’Or that year. Now only 24, Muller should dominate games in Brazil.
