2010 FIFA World Cup: Best Goals of the Tournament So Far
It has been an amazing World Cup so far and the group stages have brought the World lots of excitement.
There have been controversial red cards, those noisy vuvuzelas, upsets, and even players getting sent home.
The most important part of the group stages is how many games you win.
In order to win you have to score; some teams got the easy route, while there are some players who just love individual efforts.
Here are ten of the best goals so far.
Tshabalala vs Mexico
A very well taken goal by the South African, latching onto ball from the midfield after some beautiful passing.
Tshablala unleashed a thunderous drive into the top corner that was unstoppable; don't blame Mexican keeper Oscar Perez.
South Africa 1-0 Mexico

Gabriel Heinze vs Argentina
A very hard header, Heinze made space in the box from the corner (although Samuel pulled Obinna back) and powered home Argentina first.
DIego Forlan vs South Africa
A sublime effort from Forlan, he picked the ball up in the midfield before turning and unleashing a swerving shot.
He got lucky with a slight deflection though.
Keisuki Honda vs Denmark
A good free kick from the Japanese star, he picked his spot very well.
Sorenson could have done better with the strike.
Yasuhito Endo vs Denmark
Another Japanese free kick in the same game, a sublime strike by Endo who put the right curve and power to beat the outstretched Sorensen.
Ronaldo, Sneijder take lessons.
Valter Birsa vs USA
A very well taken goal by Bisra.
You have to feel bad for Tim Howard in goal because he had no chance and maybe was right not to try.
Luis Fabiano vs Ivory Coast
Brilliant individual skill from Luis Fabiano, lobbing to defenders and then slotting the ball home.
A couple handball won't hurt either, Fabiano got help from the blind referee on this one.
David Villa vs Honduras
David Villa has been billed as one of the stars of the tournament and opened his account in very nice fashion.
After receiving a pass on the left wing he cut in a juke past two players, then cut inside one more before a finesse shot that took the ball into the right corner.
Fabio Quagliarella vs Slovakia
This was probably the brightest spot in Italy's campaign, this wonder strike cam from a player who Italy barely used untill they had their backs to the wall.
Italy were staring defeat in the eye and this goal gave them a glimmer of hope.
Mesut Ozil vs Ghana
He is undoubtedly the best youngster of the tournament so far—he could have scored in both games against Serbia and Australia.
Maybe he was just waiting to show us how good his technique on the volley is.
