Fifa has announced its three-man shortlist for the World Cup's best young player award for 2010.

German forward Thomas Muller, Mexico winger Giovani Dos Santos and Ghana midfielder Andre Ayew have been highlighted as the best players of their age group by Fifa's technical study group.

With the Golden Ball nominees also set to be named on Friday, the global federation has surprised some with its choices, but Muller is by far the most likely to take home the prize.



World Cup Golden Ball nominees:
David Villa, Xavi, Andres Iniesta (Spain);
Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben (Holland);
Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mesut Ozil (Germany);
Diego Forlan (Uruguay);
Asamoah Gyan (Ghana);
Lionel Messi (Argentina).

I'm looking into the automatic resizer thing for the News Section on the portal. Should be sorted out soon.



And I don't know what relevance this has to United as none of our players are even in the World Cup. Moved to General Football.

EDIT: Looked into the resizer thing and it doesn't work. So added a rule.

Xavi, Villa and Sneijder to be the contenders. Xavi will win it I think.

Forlan wins Golden Ball, Mueller Golden Boot

Uruguay's Diego Forlan [ Images ] won the best player of the tournament award on Sunday after lighting up the World Cup with some wonderful goals that helped his team become South America's only semi-finalist.

- Images from the World Cup final

The blond-locked striker won legions of admirers -- not least among South African women -- for his fantastic play on the pitch and courteous attitude off it where he always made time to sign autographs and chat with fans or journalists.

- Goal scorers at 2010 World Cup finals

Forlan took 23.4 percent in the "Golden Ball" poll organised by world soccer body FIFA [ Images ] and voted for by journalists. Dutch playmaker Wesley Sneijder [ Images ] was second with 21.8 percent and Spain's David Villa [ Images ] third on 16.9 percent.

All three got five goals, making them joint top scorers along with Germany's [ Images ] Thomas Mueller.

Mueller took the "Golden Boot" award given to the top scorer, using assists and number of minutes played as a tie-breaker.

The German was also named Best Young Player.

As well as winning the World Cup, Spain also took the FIFA Fair Play Award. Their captain Iker Casillas [ Images ] won the "Golden Glove" prize for best goalkeeper.

Forlan's award will cheer Uruguayans after their side lost agonisingly to Germany 3-2 in the third place playoff.

Forlan struck the bar with a typically spectacular free kick in the last touch of the match

Spain emerged champions, beating the Netherlands 1-0 in extra-time in the final.

Well deserved in my opinion. Carried the team through.

Forlan is a surprise - but he did deserve it - he was marvelous.

Muelller - yeah it was a bit of a given only for the young player award, but him winning the golden boot as well will be a great boost to him.
