Revealed - your player & team of the tournament

LONDON - The World Cup, all 64 games of it, has been and gone and everyone has had their say.
We wanted a new way of rating players' performances, so we asked you to do the punditry.
And you responded in your hundreds of thousands, giving marks out of 10 to every player in every game throughout the tournament.
As a result, we got to see who you rated as the best and worst players on the pitch at any given game.
We've now collated the information to find the player of the tournament - as voted by you.
You may be surprised by his name. And guess who was the worst? (Clue: he's English..)
Miroslav Klose's hugely-impressive average rating of 8.05 over the seven games he played puts him top.
Klose scored a massive 9.29 following his two goals in the 3-0 win over Ecuador – and only dipped below seven once, with a 6.86 in the semi-final defeat against Italy.
We put some strict rules in place to determine the BBC Sport interactive player of the tournament; a minimum of four appearances for a team that reached at least the quarter finals, as well as a minumum number of users of the application (1,000).
The Player Rater itself scored pretty highly too, it seems. Nearly 185,000 of you visited this application for England’s second round win over Ecuador and 75,000 for the final on Sunday.
So, full marks all round then.
