Favorite Unsung Heroes in Football  A n d r é   S c h ü r r l e 

"André Schürrle proved to be the most critical player in this World Cup that virtually nobody is talking about. His pace and high-energy play helped change the trajectory of Germany’s matches against Algeria and Argentina. At times in the past for both club and country, Schürrle’s touch has eluded him in big moments. But his technique on the ball in the knock-out stages of the competition was almost flawless and without him it is very possible Germany does not win the World Cup."
