The FIFA Technical Study Group picked out Brazilian playmaker Kaka as their Budweiser Man of the Match following his superb contribution to Brazil's 3-2 win over USA in the FIFA Confederations Cup final.

"He had a tremendous influence on the game and was extremely effective on both sides of the pitch," explained TSG member Abdel Moneim Hussein of Sudan, an interested observer at Ellis Park in Johannesburg on Sunday evening. "His attacking capabilities helped Brazil to reach a new level. On top of that he is also an honest player who never complains. His behaviour is always exemplary and he is the perfect player in that respect too."
