    I agree that Forlan had a great tournamet and Uraguay would have been long gone without him.
    However, what about Spain's Xavi Hernandez? Everything went through him. He was everywhere looking for the ball. He dictated the pace and pulled all the strings for Spain through out.

    Both Forlan and Mueller were great, these awards are well-deserved. Too bad though that Klose didn't get a chance to play in the consolation game against Uruguay.
