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' Turkish Airlines Top Of The Match: Nestor Muslera (Uruguay)

The Goal.com editors have selected Uruguay goalkeeper Nestor Muslera as their Turkish Airlines Top of the Match. Muslera's ability to save two crucial spot-kicks during the penalty shoot-out gave him the nod over goalscorer and team-mate Diego Forlan.

The Lazio custodian denied Ghana captain John Mensah and Dominic Adiyah 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.

It's not often that a player conceding a last-minute penalty and getting sent off would make him a fans favorite but the Ajax striker will certainly be a hero in Montevideo after his goal line handball kept the Celeste alive, enabling them to progress to the semi-finals.
