You see, since 1950, Uruguay is like other teams that do not have a great history at the biggest football party. At the 2010 World Cup South Africa, Uruguay was able to rise from the rubble of collapse.
Under the care of a cold-handed coach, Oscar Tabarez, Uruguay transformed into a terrible monster. Captain Forlan brought Uruguay to the semifinals before finally being stopped by Germany.
Uruguay national team finished in fourth position. This achievement repeats their success in the 1970 World Cup. Forlan is charming. He scored five goals which made him the top scorer with Thomas Muller (Germany), David Villa (Spain) and Wesley Sneijder (Netherlands).
Like the people of Uruguay, Forlan will also not forget the historic moment 12 years ago on the black continent of South Africa. “The 2010 World Cup was the most incredible experience. Our small country reached the semifinals. I was the top scorer, and the goal against Germany was voted the best,” said Forlan.
Not only Forlan, of course. The other four pillars from different countries also become an inseparable history of the 2010 World Cup. Who are they?
Dangerous youth, that’s Thomas Muller. Being among the senior players did not make the quiet one clumsy.
Instead, he appeared crazy. As a result, he managed to score five goals, which made the 1989-born one of the top scorers with five goals.
For this great action, Muller was rewarded as the Best Young Player. At that time the star was only 20 years old.
