Memorable Games: Germany 3 - 2 Urguay (Third Place Playoff, 2010 FIFA World Cup)

In what was perhaps the most enthralling match of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, a very attacking Germany managed to defeat a gallant and brave Uruguay side 3 goals to 2.

Managing to come back from a 2 - 1 deficit, the Germans after going ahead from a Thomas Muller goal in the first half managed to level the game in the 55th minute thanks to a Marcell Jensen header, before Sami Khedira won the game late in the second half, popping up to slot home the winner.

Perhaps the best two teams in the tournament didn't make the final, but they surely went out with a bang. Football was the winner in this game.
