World Cup 2010, Netherlands Vs. Uruguay: Diego Forlan From Distance Equalizes For La Celeste

Something from nothing is what players like Diego Forlán gives you, and in the 42nd minute against Holland, that something was a 26-yard goal with his off-foot to pull La Celeste even with the Netherlands, 1-1.

Taking an innocent ball from his midfielders,  Forlán cut-in from even with the right post to the middle of goal, 26 yards out.  The Uruguayan star let a shot go off his left foot that appeared to curl as it came upon goalkeeper Maarten  Stekelengurg, going off the `keeper's left hand, into the net.

It was Forlán's fourth goal of the competition.

The score remains tied in the 46th minute.
