Diego Forlan is a World Class player. On the field, he is considered a master of dead-ball situations, and rarely misses a goalscoring opportunity.
His incredible vision, and consistency have helped him to win:
- The Trofeo EFE (given to the player in La Liga with the greatest accumulation of points).
- The European Golden Shoe 2x in 04-05 and 08-09 (given to the top goalscorer in the leading divisions of Europe).
- The Pichichi 2x in 04-05 and 08-09 (given to the top goalscorer in La Liga), and the 2010 FIFA World Cup Golden Ball (given to the best player of the tournament).
Proficient in the air, as well as with the ball at his feet, Forlan is a complete player, who makes up for his lack of pace, with deadly precision, decision making, and intelligence. There is no doubt that Serie A has a new superstar amongst their ranks.
