Kolkata, July 31 (IANS) 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.
