World Cup 2010, Netherlands Vs. Uruguay: Maarten Stekelenburg Saves Diego Forlan Direct Kick, Keeps Semifinal Tied

Diego Forlan's direct kick from 20-yards out dipped sharply over the Dutch wall and toward the lower-left hand corner of goal, but a great save by Dutch `keeper Maarten Stekelenburg kept the Netherlands drawn 1-1 with Uruguay.

Uruguay earned the kick after having control for most of the second half, and Forlan's direct kick looked to be the culmination for their ascendancy.  Stekelenburg, however, drove behind his wall to make his most difficult save of the match.
