After scoring an extra-time winner against Liverpool in the semi-final as well, Forlan has certainly had a lot of fun at England's expense in the competition.
It is a quite staggering change from his time at Manchester United, when he was written off.
"I don't know whether people in England are looking at me in a different way, but I am playing well and I am enjoying it," said Forlan, who will be part of the Uruguay squad at this summer's World Cup.
"Manchester United were a really good team, with great players, but it was difficult for me to play.
"I spoke to Sir Alex and told him that I wanted to leave to try and get regular football. That is why I am so happy at Atletico."
"We are bringing a title back to Spain," he added. "Hopefully tomorrow we can dress Madrid in red."
