David Villa has been the shining star in the World Cup so far. His 5 Goals have been match winning and he has single handedly kept Spain alive in the tournament. There also has been great flair in his goal scoring and it has not been a cut and thrust affair like his nearest contenders – the speedy Muller and the never ageing Klose.
Germany has been the side of the tournament so far. This youthful side has captured everybody’s attention with their speed and organisation. Muller and Klose have 4 goals each and the way Germany are going they may pump in a few more. Muller however will have to miss the next match, so it could turn out to be a race between Villa , Klose and the Dutchman Sneijder.
A brace or a hat trick from any of these players could of course settle the score emphatically. Forlan will be hoping for such a spectacular performance against Holland as he has 3 goals. Uruguay are confirmed underdogs, if they play with their feet that is, and require some Forlan genius to work for them.
I am rooting for David Villa and Spain for the Golden Boot and the Title respectively. They will have to play out of their skins against Germany but I hope their flair comes through. Holland and Robben are also very good and have won all their matches. I wish for Holland v/s Spain in the finals with Spain to win 3-2.
