Live Score
To get the live score of the match, visit the following link:
Germany had been in sparkling form before their semi final defeat to Spain. They knocked out two favorites England and Argentina with sheer ease in the round of 16 and quarter final respectively. However, it looked German players lost their spark against Spain. So, they would now like to finish the World Cup mission on high note by puting on a dominating performance against Uruguay and clinch the third spot in the tournament.
Uruguay would also love to win the third place by defeating Germany for a number of reasons. First of all, it would solace the disappointed Uruguayan fans who were dreaming of bringing their 1950 success back this year.
Moreover, a victory over Germany would give Uruguay a psychological boost as they could then claim that their progress to the semi final of the tournament was not a fluke. Uruguay faced South Korea and Ghana in the round of 16 and quarter final, before losing to Netherlands 3-2 in the semi final. So, there are many who believe the South Americans could come this far only because they faced comparatively easier opponents and their defeat to Netherlands also gives some ground to those claims.
German fans would also expect Miroslav Klose scoring at least a goal against Uruguay. One more World Cup goal from Klose would see him equaling Ronaldo’s 15-goal all time World Cup record. Moreover, the 32-yer-old striker still has a chance to win the Golden Boot. Klose, with 4 goals so far in the tournament, is now just a goal behind David Villa and Wesley Sneijder, two joint top scorers of the tournament.
However, Klose is doubtful for the match as he is now recovering from a minor back injury and missed training session recently. Moreover, a number of German players are currently suffering from flu and missed team training. However, there is every possibility Klose and other players could get over their problems and be available for the match.
While Germany is worried about Klose, Uruguayan striker Diego Forlan is now suffering from a thigh injury picked up during the semi final showdown. However, Forlan is confident of getting back his full fitness in time to be in the starting line up against Germany. Forlan has also scored 4 goals and is still a contender for the Golden Boot award.
Another in-form Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez would come back for the Germany encounter after missing the Netherlands clash due to suspension. Suarez suffered huge criticism recently for stopping a goal-bound ball by hands on the goal line against Ghana and picked up a straight red card. FIFA disciplinary committee also looked into the matter and the striker narrowly escaped a bigger punishment.
German striker and winger Thomas Muller is also available for the match after serving a one-match suspension. Muller also has 4 goals and would like to increase his goal tally in his bid to win the Golden Boot award. Moreover, he is also the strongest contender to win the Best Young Player award.
