Medel maintains defensive supremacy

He was named after one of England's greatest goalscorers but it is at the other end of the field that Gary Medel is forcing observers of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ to sit up and take notice. The Chile defender has posted two performances of such skill and consistency that he has raced to the top of the Castrol Index.

Chile have taken six points from a possible six and the impact they are making in their first FIFA World Cup since 1998 is underlined by the presence of three of their team in the top six of the Castrol Index, an innovative system which uses the latest technology to objectively analyse and rank player performances.

The story is too old to be commented.
