Dealt with a few pot shots from the opposition and kept his handling well in dangerous conditions.
Given the slip a few times by Asamoah as his side of the pitch looked riper for exploitation by the opposition.
Dealt with everything that was thrown his way in the air, and made sure his fellow defenders were kept on their toes with some strong communication.
Pushed high up the field, and was a good attacking outlet for his side, but his end product was desperately poor. He attempted a few ill-advised shots that failed to even come close.
Took care of almost everything on his flank, often taking away the overlap from Lichtsteiner and forcing the fullback to cut onto his weaker left foot.
Offered little in an attacking sense, and spent most of his time camped in his own half, providing defensive assistance to Kaya on the left flank.
The Gala vice captain played hard for his side's cause, putting in a defensive shift, though the state of the pitch meant that his usually calm passing game was decidedly off.
Scored an impossibly clutch goal, running onto a Drogba flick and drilling a sure shot inside the far post. That gave his side the points, and a spot in the knockout stage.
Seemed to relish the scrappy nature of the game, winning a number of tackles, and embracing the conditions to disrupt the opposition.
His off-the-ball movement was promising, but he was never found in a threatening position — until late on when Drogba's cutback saw him nearly prod home a clincher late on.
Held the ball up superbly well when presented with the opportunity, and his target man abilities came to the fore during the buildup to the only goal of the game. He leaped high to flick a lovely header into Sneijder's path, who did the rest.
Made a save for the ages when he tipped away a Drogba shot at full stretch. A shame that he could not end up on the winning side.
Though he nearly lost his footing a few times, he still managed to mop up most of the loose balls that came his way.
Overlapped well, and constantly gave the opposition something to think about on the right flank. Worked hard throughout.
Looked the most unsettled of Juve's back three by the state of the pitch, and allowed Sneijder to run on his blindside to score the game winner.
Made a series of vital interceptions, and never looked fazed by the opposition or the weather. Strong game.
Hampered by the bogged-down pitch, the Italian international never really got going.
Did not have as many attempts on goal as he would have liked from range, with only one tame effort no trouble for Muslera.
Charged about with his typical tenacity, but only succeeded in giving away cheap free kicks. Gave the ball away more than once in what was a game to forget.
Defended solidly, and tried to pick up the ball in attacking positions, but could not offer his team anything on that front.
In contrast to Drogba at the opposite end, he was barely able to function as a target up front for the visitors, as he was often shooed off the ball, and failed to keep his footing.
Held the ball up strongly, and was a constant nuisance for the opposition. Played a few quality passes too, despite the state of the field.
