World Cup 2010, Spain Vs. Germany: Against Run Of Play, Germany Creates Match's Best Chance

A Toni Kroos volley at Iker Casillas's left post has been saved by the Spain captain, keeping the match even in the 70th minute.

A sudden build-up from Germany through their left side led to Lukas Podolski, at the left edge of the penalty area, lofting a pass to the far post, where right wing  Toni Kroos ran onto the lob.  The recent substitute allowed the ball to come down on this right foot before hitting it onto the near post.

Iker Casillas, however, had gotten back across goal as was able to parry the ball out of play.

The match remains scoreless, now into the 72nd minute.
