Late goal helps Germany claim third place

Diego Forlan put Uruguay ahead six minutes into the second half.
Port Elizabeth, South Africa (Sports Network) - Sami Khedira's goal eight minutes from time capped a 3-2 Germany win over Uruguay in the third-place match of the FIFA World Cup at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday.

Khedira broke a 2-2 deadlock in the 82nd minute with a close-range header from a corner kick, but Uruguay had a 20-yard free kick right before the final whistle, and Diego Forlan watched it crash off the crossbar.

The Germans took the lead after 19 minutes through Thomas Muller, but his opener was canceled out nine minutes later by Uruguay's Edinson Cavani. continue>>
