Goal.com's worldwide team of editors have voted the South American shot-stopper as the top performer in the win over Ghana...Goal.com Editors' Top Of The Match Sponsored By Turkish Airlines: Nestor Muslera (Uruguay)
The Goal.com editors have selected Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera as their man of the match. Muslera was the hero as he saved two crucial spot-kicks during the penalty shoot-out to give him the nod over goalscorer and team-mate Diego Forlan.
The Lazio custodian denied Ghana captain John Mensah and Dominic Adiyiah from helping the African nation progress to the semi-finals of the tournament, whilst securing the South American's passage to final four for the first time in 40 years.
He was also instrumental in keeping his side in the match, making crucial saves when the Black Stars threatened to score.
