Top 10: Goals of South Africa 2010

7. Sulley Muntari, Ghana vs Uruguay

Asamoah Gyan did the most damage for the Black Stars in South Africa, but Muntari’s hit was the best effort: smashed from fully 40 yards, he was certainly allowed too much time by a Uruguay side leading 1-0 and already braced for the half time whistle – but it’s still miraculous that the former Pompey man managed to beat Fernando Muslera from such range. 
Pretty much forgotten post-match following Luis Suarez’s handball shenanigans, it deserved to be the strike that helped put Ghana through to the semis.
