WORLD CUP SOCCER: Germany wins 3rd place game

compiled from staff and wire reports

Germany took third place at the World Cup for the second tournament in a row over the weekend, with an exciting 3-2 win over Uraguay.

Uraguay, led by Diego Forlan, almost forced extra time. Forlan’s free kick banged against the crossbar in injury time, the last kick of the match.

The match was headed for extra time at 2-2 when Sami Khedira scored on a late header. The goal ended Uraguay’s chance of beating Germany for the first time in 82 years, while the Germans finished in the top three spots for the 11th time in history.

Uraguay had come-from-behind to lead 2-1 when Forlan volleyed in Egidio Arevalo’s 51st-minute cross for his fifth goal of the tournament. Germany defender Marcell Jansen tied it five minutes later with a header after goalkeeper Fernando Muslera misjudged the cross.

Uraguay has beaten Germany only once in 1o matches since 1928. Germany beat Uraguay in the third-place game in 1970, which is the last time Uraguay reached the semifinals.
