DAY 20: June 30 2010 'GOLDEN BOOTS' Johannesburg At the end of the first knock-out stage of the 2010 FIFA World Cup TM in South Africa, three adidas players topped the goalscoring table with four goals apiece: Spain's David Villa, Luis Suarez of Uruguay and Slovakia's Robert Vittek. To mark this, adidas brought together two previous Golden Boot winners in Johannesburg: Portugal legend Eusebio and German great Gerd Muller. Eusebio was top scorer at the 1966 World Cup in England and his nine goals helped Portugal reach the last four for the first time in their history. Gerd Muller's 10 goals at the 1970 FIFA World Cup TM in Mexico earned him the Golden Boot and he added four more goals in 1974 – including the winner in the final – to lead West Germany to FIFA World Cup TM glory on home soil. Here, Paul Junior Kasemwana captures Muller in his pomp and Espoir Vyizigiro Kennedy's painting highlights Eusebio's grace and power. Both men were on hand to add their signatures and put a golden seal on their paintings.
