Final Question Today: Who is the only player?

To have won all 3 major awards at the World Cup Finals? ie; The World Cup itself, the Golden Ball and the Golden Shoe.

Should be easy, this one;

Before I go, relive Paul Young's Love of the Common People:

Update:

Zidane did not win the Golden Shoe in 1998, it went to Davor Suker. Ronaldo failed to win the Golden Ball in 2002, Oliver Kahn did.

This player also won the European and World Player of the Year, in the year of his greatest success.

    I remember Paul Young....... he was quite big in the early eighties....just about the same time as......ahah!

    Incidentally, it could almost have been Garrincha in '62, who achieved the other two but they didn't give out the golden shoe at that stage (and he shared it). Though i didn't know any of that until i saw an article commemorating the 25 anniversary of his death.
