Mueller celebrates double award
Thomas Mueller was given two reasons to celebrate after the German starlet was named Young Player of the 2010 World Cup and picked up the Golden Boot for the tournament's top scorer.
The 20 year old Bayern Munich forward finished the tournament with five goals, the same number as Uruguay's Diego Forlan, Wesley Sneijder of the Netherlands and Spain's David Villa.
He was awarded the Golden Boot because he had supplied three assists, which was more than any of his rivals.
Mueller was elected the tournament's outstanding young player by FIFA's Technical Study Group, beating off competition from Ghana winger Andre Ayew and Mexican forward Giovanni dos Santos.
