World Cup 2010, Argentina Vs. Germany: Miroslav Klose Benefits From Podolski, Mueller Work, Puts Germany Up 2-0

An open second half that had given few clear scoring chances was broken open in the 6thh minute when Miroslav Klose scored his 13th World Cup goal to put Germany up 2-0 over Argentina.

The play began with build-up through the left side that was eventually played behind the line for Lukas Podolski by Thomas Müller, who turned while on the ground to put a pass beyond the right side of Argentina's line.  Podolski went toward the near post and put a ball across the six for Klose as goalkeeper Sergio Romero committed. 

Klose took two touches to push Germany to a 2-0 lead.
