What it lacked in open free-flowing football, it certainly made up for in drama as Eamonn Fitzmaurice's side gritted their teeth and got the job done in a game which had its share of controversy with black cards and penalty calls aplenty.

Here at Independent.ie, we want to know which player stood above all others and had the biggest impact on proceedings. Was it Kingdom keeper Brendan Kealy who pulled off some key saves? Or will Donnchadh Walsh, the unsung hero of Kerry football, have his day in the sun after yet another power-packed display?

What of half-forwards Johnny Buckley and Stephen O'Brien who chipped in some key Kerry scores? And from the losing Tyrone side, will the efforts of Colm Cavanagh and tight-marking defender Cathal McCarron be recognised with the award?
