World Cup 2010: Germany vs. Serbia Live Stream [UPDATED]
Three-time champions Germany are currently topping Group D of the 2010 FIFA World Cup with three points, and more than likely can clinch a second-round berth with a victory over Serbia in Port Elizabeth this afternoon.
Die Mannschaft put in an amazing display in their 4-0 thrashing of Australia in their opening game. The Europeans were credited with producing the best performance of the first phase with their dynamic win, and Miroslav Klose evolved into the striker fans in his country have come to expect. The 32-year-old Bayern Munich hitman is only four strikes behind Ronaldo’s all-time World Cup record of 15 goals.
The backbone of Germany’s squad is from the U-21 EURO championship winning team in 2009. And although Cacau is pressuring the place of Klose, coach Joachim Loew is expected to stick with the starting XI that walloped the Socceroos.
Serbia, on the other hand, looked somewhat tired in the 1-0 defeat to Ghana. If Serbia lose and the Black Stars take points from their encounter with Australia, the White Eagles will take no hope of advancing into the Round of 16.
Coach Radomir Antic will hope his offensive players, Milos Krasic, Milan Jovanovic, and new Birmingham signing Nikola Zigic, show more than they did in their opening match. However, history is not on Serbia’s side. Their last victory over the Germans came in 1962 when they were still part of Yugoslavia.
The game starts at 13:30 CET (7:30 a.m. ET).
UPDATE: Serbia stunned Germany with a 1-0 win through Milan Jovanovic’s first half strike. The result lifts the White Eagles’ chances of qualifying from Group D following their 1-0 loss to Ghana.
