World Cup 2010, Spain Vs. Germany: Piotr Trochowski Registers Germany's First Shot On Goal

It took 31 minutes, but Germany has their first shot on goal, a speculative attempt from second choice right wing Piotr Trochowski.

The midfielder was given space from 26 yards out from counterpart Joan Capdevila.  The left-footed turned toward the middle of the pitch and let a shot go, the ball  moving along the ground toward Iker Casillas's near post, forcing the Spain goalkeeper to parry the ball out-of-play.

Now in the 37th minute, Spain and Germany remain scoreless.
