World Cup 2010, Germany Vs. Uruguay: Thomas Mueller's Fifth Tournament Goal Gives Germany Early Lead

Germany went up 1-0 in the 19th minute after Thomas Müller scored off the rebound of a Bastian Schweinsteiger shot. 

The goal was Müller's fifth of the tournament, tying him for the competition's high mark.

Schweinsteiger took a shot from 40 yards out that gave Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera trouble.  The `keeper coughed-up a rebound that Müller, moving toward goal as the Uruguayan line was pushing-up, easily got to before any defenders, for a simple finish.

The match, now in the 23rd minute, stills sees Germany leading 1-0.
