France full-back Manuel Amoros, who was voted as the best young player of the 1982 FIFA World Cup Spain™, won 82 caps for his country.

The former Monaco and Marseille star, who also appeared at Mexico 1986, found himself in some esteemed company in this respect. After all, others voted best young player at previous World Cups include Florian Albert (1962), Franz Beckenbauer (1966), Teofilo Cubillas (1970) and, of course, the one and only Pele (1958).

Thomas Muller picked up the award at South Africa 2010, and there are sure to be plenty of worthy contenders to succeed him on show during Brazil 2014.
