Bert Van Marwijk: The Dutch have always been known for their sharp tactics, smart and technical game, but they have not been able to translate all these into much of success. Experts believed under Bert Van Marwijk they had a good chance of lifting the coveted trophy. That they couldn't is a different story.

Van Marwijk has been a very non-dutch like person. He is calm, sensible and capable of managing egos. He understands the strengths and weaknesses of his players. He was marked as the Knight in the Order of Orange-Nassau after taking the team to the final.

Dunga: Brazil coach Dunga had the chance to become just the second player to win the World Cup as player and coach. Instead he left angry and disappointed at his tactics going horribly wrong in the game against the Netherlands. As they say all great players don't become great coaches.

Takeshi Okada: Japan coach Takeshi Okada became a laughingstock after he said his team would reach the World Cup semi-finals. It was a huge statement to make for a team that had never won a tournament game away from home. And even when Japan failed to enter the semi-finals, Okada stood vindicated. His team advanced to the round of 16.

Okada, hardly showing any hint of emotion, is known for being hard and rigid on his decisions. He benched Japanese super star Shunsuke Nakamura and played with a single striker Keisuke Honda, who scored the lone goal for Japan against Cameroon and won the first away game for his side

Raymond Domenech: Now this man was a disaster. France's manager Raymond Domenech got it all wrong this World Cup. Following the draw with Uruguay, French striker Nicolas Anelka directed a tirade at the coach. Next day, Domenech dismissed him and sent him back. A day later, the entire French team refused to practice in protest. The France Football Federation intervened and the players returned to practice.

Damage was done but not Domenech. France's World Cup campaign ended with a 2-1 defeat to South Africa. After the defeat, Domenech refused to shake the hand with South African coach Carlos Alberto Parreira.

Fabio Capello: Before the World Cup, Capello was touted as the kind of strict disciplinarian that England's star players needed to harmonize into a winning combination. But England's below par show had critics up with their daggers.

After England's 1-1 draw with the USA, Capello slammed the Jabulani ball and said it "impossible to control". A 0-0 draw against Algeria didn't help the cause either.

According to FIFA's tournament rankings, Capello oversaw the worst ever World Cup campaign in England's footballing history.
