World Cup 2010, Germany Vs. Uruguay: Sami Khedira Coverts Corner Kick Chaos To Give Germans Lead

New, comment

Sami Khedira's first goal for Germany has given his team a 3-2 lead in the 81st minute against Uruguay.

A Mesut Özil corner kick played to the middle of the six yard box hit the ground unplayed, and when Uruguayan captain Diego Lugano was unable to clear the call after some chaotic play, Khedira headed a shot over goalkeeper Fernando Muslera and into the right side of the net for the goal-ahead goal.

Germany now holds a 3-2 lead in the match's 86th minute.
