This duel for the 3rd place actually happened once before, in 1970, when the Germans won 1-0.
Many people would say it will be the same this time around. Uruguay had good performances at the World Cup, but Germany was quite impressive. They played very good football and, even if they lost to Serbia, too, you could say that they only had a worthy opponent in Spain.
More than this, they will want to win today, to preserve their honor. Even more, they will want to get over the upset of not playing the final. We must also note that Paul the octopus said they would win.
Uruguay is also a good team, but, only by reaching this stage of the competition, they have made a fabulous surprise.
It should be a very interesting game, anyway.
