While in Doha for the 72nd FIFA Congress and the Final Draw for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 we met with our international museum ambassador Diego Forlán to talk about his role as FIFA Museum Ambassador and how quickly footballers can make history.
The FIFA Museum’s international ambassador Diego Forlàn knows what it takes for a footballer to secure a spot in the history books. Hailing from Uruguay, a nation with two FIFA World Cup wins under its belt, Forlàn earned his place in world football history at the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa. His five goals and one assist helped him win the adidas Golden Ball, the award given to the tournament's best player. In the video he talks about how history can be made in the blink of an eye.
