World Cup 2010 Group D: Germany 0-1 Serbia

Table of Contents
Milan Jovanović scored in the first period to give Serbia a 1-0 win over the three-time World Cup champions Germany at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Germany striker Miroslav Klose was harshly sent off by Spanish referee Alberto Undiano after a rough tackle in the 37th minute earned him a second yellow card.

Things were to deteriorate further for the Germans within two minutes when Miloš Krasić swung a deep centre from the right that 6ft 6in striker Nikola Žigić nodded down for Jovanović to neatly chest down and ram home.

Lukas Podolski wasted a great chance to equalise in the 60th minute when he saw his penalty saved by Serbia keeper Vladimir Stojković after Nemanja Vidić had needlessly handled in the area.
