4) Thomas Muller
If not for Michael Ballack’s last minute injury, there would have been no Thomas Muller for Germany at the world cup 2010. At the time, the young Muller had enjoyed a breakthrough season with the Bayern and was a newbie on the international level. However, Muller continued his fine run winning the Golden Boot in South Africa. He carried the golden touch to Brazil nearly winning the golden boot once again. He has already scored 10 goals in two world cups and at 28, is at the peak of his powers. The Raumdeuter must certainly be considered a strong candidate for winning the Golden boot once again.
