Thomas Muller: Dazzling Star of the FIFA World Cup 2010


If you are a football fan here is an astonishing fact for you: Thomas Muller of Germany has scored with every shot he took at the goal during the FIFA World Cup 2010.

The then 20-year old’s place in playing 11 had raised many eyebrows and question were asked by many when Muller, being a total newbie amongst others in the German squad, started the tournament in the right wing.

Very soon, this footballer proved all the critics wrong. He flourished throughout the tournament and won his worthy price: the Golden Boot award for the top scorer.Muller opened his goal-scoring with a stunning goal against Germany’s first clash against Australia.

The goal came pretty unexpectedly in the 69th minute when he struck the ball at the left sidebar from a very tight angle.

Although he failed to score or assist in the next match against Serbia, Muller came back against England to score a brace in quick succession, in the 67th and 70th minute.

He was also responsible for the Podolski goal 13 minutes from half-time.

In the Quarter-final stage, Muller hit again, this time against Argentina. In a short period of 3 minutes from kick-off, he scored with a brilliant header from a free-kick taken by Bastian Schweinsteiger.

In the 68th minute, Thomas Muller released the ball to Podolski in an artistic fashion, who set up Klose for a tap into the Argentine goal. In that match, Germany humiliated Argentina 4-0.

In the third-place play-off, Muller opened Germany’s scoring again. Although it was considered to be a very tight off-side, the goal was given as Muller touched the ball deflected off the Uruguay goalkeeper.

Besides Muller, there were David Villa, Diego Forlan and Wesley Sneijder as the Golden Boot award contender, but Muller outshone everyone else as he had the highest number of assists (3).
