World Cup Top Goal Scorers - Thomas Mueller Wins The Golden Shoe

Thomas Mueller of Bayern Munich and Germany has won the World Cup Golden Shoe after finishing joint-top of the scoring charts and with the most assists.

Mueller shared a tally of five with David Villa of Spain, Uruguay's Diego Forlan, and Wesley Sneijder of the Netherlands, but managed three assists while the others could hit just one.

Thus the young German in his first ever World Cup wins the award, as FIFA decided that assists will be used to decide in the case of a tie.

Below we give a chart containing all the 2010 World Cup goal scorers. Players are sorted first by goals scored, then (to separate the top four only) assists, then minutes per goal (MPG), then finally surname.
