Germany vs Uruguay Live Today 14:30 EDT – Germany will compete with Uruguay for third place in the World Cup 2010. Germany lost to Spain and Uruguay lost to Netherlands in their semifinals matches and end up fighting for the top 3 of the best football teams.
Team Germany had been hit with the flue including their coach and some key players which includes kipper Philipp Lahm, striker Lukas Podolski sat out that session. Both of them sat out during the training session prior to the game.
The German Coach, Joachim Loew will not be present during the pre-game press conference. His assistant coach will be doing his role but Loew will be present during the actual game at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Port Elizabeth.
Germany’s Miroslav Klose is also looking for a good game and at least one goal to tie with Brazil’s Ronaldo for the all-time World Cup scoring record of 15 goals.
For Uruguay this match is the last way to have their pride intact and fly back home still as a winner of sorts. Uruguay nonetheless already outperformed fellow South American’s Brazil and Argentina but they still have to prove that they can win.
Although Paul The Octopus seems to side with the Germans who had been mad at him for predicting a Spain win in the semifinals, coach Oscar Tabarez has reminded his team they still have a job to do at the World Cup despite their big lose to the Netherlands, 3-2.
With a more urgent historical need at hand, I am predicting that Germany will win this match and we will be assured of at least one or two goals from Klose.
Meanwhile live games of the Germany vs Uruguay match will be broadcasted via ESPN and NBC. There will also be available live streams online via Justin.tv, Ustream.tv, Newzaroundus.com and Footyfire.com.
Nobody expected this but it is true, the Germany vs Argentina match ended 4-0 in favor of Germany. Diego Maradona and his Argentinian squad fail to even score a single goal in their match. It was a match you never imagined could happen to a team like Argentina.
Yesterday it was Brazil and now it was Argentina. Before these matches happen everyone is setting their eye for a battle between Brazil and Argentina but now it would be anybody’s game. The match later today will be the clincher of a very eventful quarterfinals of the World Cup 2010.
Today, I failed with my prediction for I never imagined that Argentina would play so predictable and lame. Yes, I did say lame because they had played lame and very unlikely. Just 3 minutes into the match they already allowed a goal by Thomas Mueller. That is Mueller’s fourth goal in the World Cup.
Then came the 68th minute, Miroslav Klose scored another goal making that his 100th international appearance with a good impression to everyone. The third goal came from Defender Arne Friedrich on the 74th minute and then another one from Klose on the 89th minute.
Before this game Maradona is quoted as saying that England allowed Germany to score too much and did been easy on them. England lost to Germany 4-1. However, if you look at today’s much you would definitely ask if Argentina is really a champion team.
Now, let us analyze, If Germany could beat a team as good as Argentina then we might be seeing the champion of this years World Cup unless something striking would happen again. Germany as the World Cup 2010 champions is likely but this is World Cup 2010 and it is the most unpredictable World Cup ever.
Now here is the video highlight for Germany vs Argentina.
The Netherlands defeated Uruguay in their semifinals match with 3 goals to 2. It was the sweetest victory ever as they came close to a possible repeat of the 1978 Germany vs Netherlands World Cup finals match. The field and the benches as well as the whole Deutschland was flooded with the color orange. It seems for many orange would be the color of victory this year as many anticipate their eventual win as champions of World Cup 2010.
Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder became the starts and power players of the Netherlands team. Clad in an all-orange team uniform the Netherlands swept pass through strong opponent and favorite Brazil. They defeated the five time World Cup champions, 2-1. Sneijder already had five goals in this World Cup while Robben has two. The two would be the man to watch during the finals scheduled on June 11 at Soccer City, Johannesburg.
Yesterday, disappointed orange travelers leave back for Holland after they have booked their ship ticket in advance saying that they have never anticipated that their team would perform this well. We are sure that if they had the chance they would never miss such a game. The travelers left Holland late May to travel miles across and give support to their international team.
Will the world be seeing more of the orange flood by the end of the finals on July 11? Will this be the official color of victory for the next couple of years until the next World Cup?
This remains to be seen but am sure that everyone in the team and in Deutschland wants this to happen.
Portugal and Spain is the last football to end the last day of the Round of 16 elimination round at the FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa which will be held live at the Green Point Stadium in Cape Town.
Portugal did a wonderful job in defeating North Korea at an outstanding score of 7-0 during one of their three previous matches. The other two football matches were a tie against Brazil and Ivory Coast at scores of both 0-0. Spain, on the other hand, has a two win and one loss during its first three football matches here at FIFA World Cup. Spain won against Chile at a score of 2-1 and against Honduras at a score of 2-0. Spain, however, was lost to Switzerland at a score of 0-1.

Spain vs Netherlands World Cup 2010 Finals – Many have said that Paul the Octopus already ended this game by predicting Spain as the 2010 World Cup champions. By letting Spain win it also zeals the observation that the era of Total Football had long ended in 1978.
This scenario is something that Netherlands coach, Bert van Marwijk is avoiding and am sure everyone else in the team. There are lots of speculations and there are many who wants Paul The Octopus to fail in the finals prediction tonight.
The two key players to the Spain vs Netherlands match would be David Villa and Wesley Sneijder. Each of them have 5 goals a piece and they had been pivotal to every game, who would rise above the other and deliver the World Cup 2010 crown to their team.
A lost today for the Netherlands will mean their third failure to snatch that elusive World Cup trophy. They have long prepared for this and a repeat of the 1974 and 1978 match would surely not the scenario that the Holland players are looking forward to. (See the 1974 and 1978 Netherlands World Cup final match)
What would be different this year for Netherlands? Let us look at a video produced by ESPN regarding the Netherlands for the World Cup 2010.
In just a few hours, the world plays witness to the biggest football spectacle pitting the Netherlands and Spain in the 2010 World Cup finals. Paul the octopus may have made a bold prediction on who the winner will be but let us try to break down what it takes to really get the job done.
Dutch Midfielder Mark van Bommel will have his hands full containing Spaniard Xavi Fernandez. Xavi is considered one of the best among active football players, if not the best. How well van Bommel can employ his rugged type of defense on Xavi will have an impact on how Spain can execute their attacks.
The matchup between Wesley Sneijder of Netherlands and David Villa of Spain will be an interesting one as both are tied at five goals apiece in the tournament. Both are vying for the Golden Boot Award but what would be the most important piece to their careers would be touching a World Cup at the end of ninety minutes.
With their nations’ expectations heavy on their shoulders, who will buckle under pressure? This will be the first World Cup championship for either team. In the next few hours, we are all witnesses as history unfolds.
As the reigning 2008 Euro Cup winners, Spain has the edge over the Dutch in the finals.
Finally, the final match is already here. Few hours from now, the world will welcome this season’s FIFA World Cup champion. It would be a match between the undefeated Netherlands who amazingly ousted several top seeded teams against Spain, an ancient team of soccer who hasn’t reach the finals since 1950
For the first time, Spain amazingly defeated Germany in the semi finals since 1950 1-0 via a headed goal from Carles Puyol and now advances to the much awaited final game.
Netherlands or the Holland team on the other hand had shown awesome matches by starting to secure a 100 percent record in their World Cup 2010 qualification campaign, winning all eight games and becoming the first European team to qualify for the World Cup.
The Dutch team is a tough team to defeat as they never lost a match until they reach the Finals. The match will take place at Soccer City on Sunday at 2:30 pm (EST) wherein majority of the world’s population will be watching.

Hitting up worldwide fame, the Psychic Octopus, Paul the Octopus has amazingly predicted results of all the 6 games of Germany’s FIFA matchs. No miss no so far. The world has been looking forward for is prediction of Germany’s match against Urguay this Sunday morning (Singapore Time).
The Oracle octopus, who was four-for-five at Euro 2008, has boasted a perfect record at this World Cup. It predicted Germany’s wins over Australia, Ghana, England and Argentina by choosing to eat a mussel from boxes emblazoned with the flags of the German team and their rivals.
It doesn’t favor German flag as always since it has forecasted losses to Serbia in the group stage and to Spain in the semi-final yesterday morning (Singapore time).
Whatever would the prediction of Paul will, to win a match would not depend on it. It still boils down to dedication, discipline, perseverance and team work.
