David Villa?
Xavi?
Diego Forlan?
Snjider?

...Cristiano Ronaldo?

Of those I'd give it to Sneijder and Forlan (besides Sweinsteiger). I can make a legit case for them as they've done a lot for their teams.
Villa has scored goals. (albeit very important goals) He's been important but I don't think he's played the best. He'll probably get the golden boot, depending on what Klose does the next 2 games. I think Klose and Villa have done similar things for their teams; be in the right spot and pounce on opportunities.
Xavi's been really good but not spectacular IMO. I think Iniesta's been just as important, though without Xavi, Spain isn't Spain.

c.ronaldo would get it if this was a watermelon seed spitting contest :P

Yeah Klose and Villa are the clinical strikers of the WC... Only Villa's chances have been far more influencial, deciding and difficult goals than Klose's, Villa has practically won the last 4 games in a row for Spain

Man I thought Xavi has been immense for what Xavi does best, doing amazing things consistently under the radar... Iniesta only pulled out a preformance last few games, he was poor in the early group stages

But Snijder, Forlan and Sweinstiger have been a class above

Man he is unreal at launching watermelon projectiles, like Football is just his day job to keep him going till he makes it big

no doubt, Xavi has been crucial to Spain. I know Iniesta hasn't had greatest of world cups, but i think the collective play of Iniesta-Xavi-Xabi Alonso has been more important to Spain as they know each other really well. If I had to pick one player out of that group though, in fairness, it would be Xavi.
Villa has practically won the last 4 games in a row for Spain
And that line is why Spain should worry against Germany.

Ronaldo's my all-time favorite player (as evident by my signature) but if there was someone to pass him, I don't mind it being Klose. He's a class act; one of the best finishers of our time and goes about his business.

In my opinion Honda and Özil has definitely been the best players in the world cup so far! :D

Diego Forlan is the impressive player of the world cup 2010

Post by kingpro » 04 Jul 2010, 17:52

Diego Forlan has been in scintillating form for his country and currently has two goals in the tournament. He plays his club football for Athletico Madrid in Spain and had another excellent season. Forlan scored crucial goals against Liverpool and Fulham in the semi-final and final of Athletico’s successful Europa League campaign and has carried on his rich vein of form in the World Cup forming a lethal partnership with Luis Suarez.

Despite being the wrong side of 30 Forlan has generated an increasing amount of interest in his services, most notably from Tottenham in the English Premier League. However following a poor spell in England with Manchester United Forlan has blossomed in Spain and is unlikely to want to move away from his current team.

You copy and pasted this... Not sure what to say about that. Anyways Diego Forlan has been key for Uruguay's success, but I think ultimately the most solid and influential player has been Schweinsteiger.

I agree with Pichichi. Scheinsteiger has had a fantastic tournament. I remember seeing him break through a club level a few years ago and always liked the way he played... it's good to see him performing so well in the WC.
