Who won the third place in the FIFA World Cup 2010

Who won the third place in the FIFA World Cup 2010

There are those who ask why FIFA bother with a third place playoff game. The last thing the beaten semi finalists want is yet another match; they would rather be on the plane home licking their wounds and dreaming of what might have been. But FIFA has declared this anti climax goes on for at least this year’s tournament and thus Germany will play Uruguay at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, on Saturday 10 July 2010.

Germany So Far in the FIFA World Cup

Those who hadn’t nipped off to watch a bit of paint drying during an incredibly dull first half of Germany’s semi final against Spain will have been pleased not to have missed what eventually turned into a football match in the second half. Germany though had no answer to a Spanish side that wore them down through clever passing and eventually claimed their 1 0 win through a powerful header by Carles Puyol with twenty minutes to go.

Before that game, Germany were buzzing. After demolishing England 4 1 in the Round of 16, they followed it with a crushing 4 0 defeat of Argentina, rated as one of the best teams in the tournament.

After a controversial win over Ghana in the quarter finals, Uruguay lost all their remaining friends in Africa; many were still upset at the role they played in knocking the hosts South Africa out in the group stage.

That said, they showed little of the nerves that a hostile crowd can instil during their semi final against the Netherlands and came preciously close to taking the match into extra time after being 3 1 down.

A lesser team might have folded after a wonder strike by Giovanni van Bronckhorst gave the Netherlands an early lead, but Uruguay hit back with a Diego Forlan long range strike just before half time. The Dutch took the lead again with twenty minutes to go through Wesley Sneijder, and this time it was Uruguay’s turn to feel aggrieved as there was more than a suspicion of offside. When Arjen Robben headed a third three minutes later, it looked all over for the South Americans. But they were not going down without a fight and pulled one back in injury time through Maximiliano Pereira and then gave their opponents a nervous couple of minutes as they pressed for an equaliser that never came.

Luis Suarez will probably be back for this game after missing the semi final through suspension following his handball that robbed Ghana of a quarter final victory. Luis Suarez was also the Uruguay hero in the Round of 16, scoring twice to give them a 2 1 win over South Korea. Uruguay got to the knockout stage as group winners with victories against Mexico and South Africa following a nervous goalless draw with France.

Germany vs Uruguay HIGHLIGHTS Video: Germany beat Uruguay 3 2 on July 10, in the match for the 3rd place of FIFA World Cup 2010.

Mueller, Jansen and Kedhira scored for Germany while Cavani and Forlan scored for Uruguay.

Germany 1 0 Uruguay : Meller (19′)

Muller’s fifth goal of the tournament! It was a pinging, swerving shot from distance from Schweinsteiger. Muslera got behind but could only push it in front of him, and there was Muller to tap it in.

Germany 1 1 Uruguay : Cavani (28′)

NIghtmare for Schweinsteiger! He’s caught in possession in his own half by Perez, and Suarez releases Cavani, who makes no mistake from 14 yards, tucking it in low.

Germany 1 2 Uruguay : Diego Forlan (51′)

What a goal! Forlan on the volley, and that’s his fifth of the tournament too! It was a scissor style volley, low from the edge of the area, on his weaker foot, under pressure with very little room in which to work. Great, great goal. Arevalo with the cross. We have a four way tie at the top of the Golden Boot charts, and Uruguay lead!

The Dutch legacy prevailed! Viva La Holland. I have all along said in my blogs that the Netherlands are going to clinch this world cup final. However, my loyal lies with Africa. I know that the Netherlands can will but I am hoping that Ghana will win. The Brazilians can now go home and relax for 2014.

Brazils samba soccer magic was not enough to mesmerize their worthy opponents from Holland. What a game, what a match up? Brazil could just not get things right because I think their reputation has gone to the heads of their players. They were collecting yellow and red cards like a poker dealer gathers the cards in a casino. The Brazilian players were just not relaxed enough to play their usual magical brand of soccer.

The Netherlands had an obvious game plan. Even a surprise first goal against the run of play early on did not deter them. It was not even a great goal by Brazilian standards. I was appalled at the standard of play by the Brazilians. They were ill disciplined and tried some sneaky stuff that counted against them in the end.

Ghana will beat Uruguay later today. Ghana will go ahead and play in the semi final against the Netherlands. That game will cause a sword to render my heart. I will not watch that game because the pressure will be unbearable. My two favorite teams playing each other in the semi final.

The other semi final will be Argentina versus Spain. Spain will eventually play Ghana in the final. Ghana will beat Spain and have the African Soccer World Cup Soccer Kingdom and adulation from the world as they ascend the Soccer throne.
