THE match nobody wants to be playing in, the match for third place. But unfortunately for these two, that’s exactly where they are.




Uruguay and Germany have won five World Cups between them: Uruguay in ’30 and ’50, (West) Germany in ’54, ’74 and ’90.

The pair have met three times in the World Cup before tonight’s game. West Germany beat Uruguay 4-0 in 1966 and 1-0 in the Match for Third Place in 1970. They drew 1-1 with each other in 1986.

We should get some goals in this game. The 16 previous Matches for Third Place have produced 63 goals, and the two teams have scored 22 in this tournament alone.

Zakumi: “Can only see Germany winning this.”

P92: “Uruguay don’t deserve to take bronze. The way that they have carried on since the Ghana game has been shameful.”

Catch the match tonight on ITV; kick-off is at 19:30.
