11:08 am on 14 July 2014

Germany's Manuel Neuer has won the Golden Glove award for the football World Cup's best goalkeeper.

Neuer helped his team to Monday's 1-0 victory over Argentina in the final at Rio de Janeiro's Maracana Stadium.

The 28-year-old Bayern Munich player was presented with the award moments after the triumph, beating out competition from Argentine opposite number Sergio Romero and Keylor Navas of surprise package Costa Rica.

Neuer was beaten only four times in the tournament and kept clean sheets in the 1-0 quarter-final win over France and the victory over Argentina in the final.

He succeeds Spain's Iker Casillas, who was voted outstanding goalkeeper at the 2010 tournament in South Africa.
