Kaz, if it's supposed to be about goals then assists are not goals. It's another rubbish idea by the suits in FIFA.
If they want to award assists then they should set up another prize for assists. Goals are goals and it's unfair to the others who also scored 5.
I don't see anything wrong with sharing it as long as it stays about goals.
Having said that, Sneijder didn't deserve to share it because he was awarded the own goal by Felipe Melo! Another crack decision by FIFA!
Behrooz jan, I simply don't agree. Well, if they wanted to share the award...then ok. If they want someone outright, then it makes sense. It's like goal difference being the tie-breaker in groups, when two teams have the same amount of points.
On 22 April 2010, Forlán scored the only goal of the game in Atlético's Europa League semi-final first leg at home to Liverpool. A week later, Liverpool took the tie to extra time before taking a 2–1 aggregate lead. Forlán then scored again to make it 2–2 on aggregate, giving Atlético the away goal they needed to reach the final, in which they played against Fulham at Hamburg's HSH Nordbank Arena on 12 May. Forlán scored twice against Fulham in the Final, in a 2–1 win.
Forlan is for sure the MVP of the tournament considering his excellent leadership as captain, crucial goals that he scored, and last but not least the assists that he provided. It doesn't get better than that...
Forlan inspired his team to have one result where they played above their standard and that was against Mexico. Other than that Mueller outplayed him. Other like Xavi, Sneijder, Robben and even Casillas with his numerous clean sheets have all outplayed and had a bigger impact than Forlan.
