Well it's still part of the World Cup though, it's not like it's a friendly.
Thing is though Uruguay have 1 more day rest which is a big deal imo when the time between matches is very short. Germans rest 2 days and play on 3rd while Uruguay rest 3 days then play match on 4th day. That could be a factor and maybe it means Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez also have an outside chance of finishing top-scorer.
Really, this match is time waste, would make is better as on the Euro when both teams which have lost in a semi-final receive bronze awards. But in this case I hope for Germany though to Uruguay the victory will be more necessary, after all they did not win medal WC 60 years.
Yes, the match was very good so it is a pity that Forlan has punched in a crossbeam, and that very beautiful goal would turn out. And so I congratulate Germany on this victory, and also an octopus of Paul with the next guessed result.
Forlan dangerous even in final second. Did his case well for Golden Ball and of course joint-top scorer as well with Muller now. Just need Villa and Sneijder not to score tomorrow which isn't too unlikely.
However, wouldn't neither Villa nor Sneijder score tomorrow the Golden Shoe would be awarded to Mueller alone, since he's got most assists. Sneijder and Villa could assist two more goals each and it still would go to Mueller, since he played less minutes in the World Cup.
