Defence

Nike: Thiago Silva, Ashley Cole, Braislav Ivanovic, Gerard Pique

Adidas: Philipp Lahm, Jordi Alba, Mats Hummels, Gary Cahill

Nike's defence has a nice balance to it, and while Invanovic is often solid rather than spectacular, they look particularly strong at centre-back with Silva and Pique.

Adidas are incredibly strong at full-back and can also call upon Dani Alves, who switched from Nike a few years back.

Gary Cahill is capable, but not quite up to the level of those around him.

Winners: Nike
