World Cup 2010, Germany Vs. Uruguay: Teams Go Into Halftime Drawn 1-1

Germany and Uruguay have gone into halftime drawn 1-1 in Port Elizabeth, the two nations contesting third-place at the 2010 World Cup.

Germany opened the scoring in the 18th minute through Thomas Müller, who capitalized off the rebound of a Bastian Schweinsteiger shot to beat Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera, the ring wing's fifth goal tying him for the tournament's high mark while putting the Germans in the lead.

Uruguay equalized near the half-hour mark when midfielder Diego Perez forced a turnover in midfield and quickly transitioned that into a counterattack.  Luis Suárez carried the ball into the final third before laying-off to the left for Edinson Cavani, who toe-poked his shot past an oncoming Hans-Jörg Butt for the tying goal.

Over an open first half, the two teams have nearly split possession, with Germany putting three shots on goal to Uruguay's one.

Dennis Aogo and Cacau have picked-up yellow cards for Germany.
