There can be no question of exactly who was the Man of the Match for the Bundesliga battle featuring last season’s champions, Bayern Munich, and their closest rival in the 2009-10 table of the German top flight, Schalke 04 Gelsenkirchen.

MANUEL NEUER, who has earned 15 caps in his career thus far for Germany, assumed first choice status at Schalke 04 Gelsenkirchen at the age of 20 with 27 starts for the Royal Blues during the 2006-2007 campaign and has retained such ever since.

The youthful Neuer, the former Germany U-21 international who acquitted himself well for Deutschland’s senior squad in South Africa this summer, is developing quite nicely into another standout for a nation that is accustomed to the likes of a SEPP MAIER, TONI SCHUMACHER or OLIVER KAHN, etc.
