Milan Jovanović (pictured) scored the game’s only goal as Serbia turned the tables on Germany and completely altered the course of Group D at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth. Lukas Podolski failed to convert an equalizing penalty for Germany after Nemanja Vidić handled the ball in the box for Serbia on the hour. The Germans were not aided by Miroslav Klose’s red card, a scenario that deprived Germany not only of an accomplished striker for the rest of today’s game but also will keep Klose from playing in the final group game against Ghana next week. Still, Germany held strong and remain on a +3 goal differential after their initial drubbing of Australia. The result of Australia’s match with Ghana tomorrow will clarify Group D but Germany’s failure to win today means there is no longer a sure thing.
