Goal against Germany my best in World Cup, says Forlan

Kolkata, July 31: Uruguayan Diego Forlan, who bagged the golden ball as the best player of the recently concluded football World Cup, Saturday rated his goal against Germany in the third-fourth play-off as the best of his five strikes in the big event.

‘My best goal in the World Cup is the one I scored against Germany. Every goal I scored was very nice as all of them meant something. They were all important games. Every time you score, you score for your country,’ Forlan told a media conference here.

With Uruguay and Germany locked 1-1, Forlan scored a beauty of a goal following a cross from the right.

The 31-year-old Athletico Madrid striker let loose a lethal side volley on the run to put his side ahead 2-1.

However, later Germany struck two more to take the third spot.
