World Cup 2010: Germany vs Uruguay Preview and Predictions
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.
