Serbia leads Germany 1-0 after 75 minutes
PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa — Serbia goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic saved a penalty by Lukas Podolski to preserve his team’s 1-0 lead over 10-man Germany through 75 minutes of the teams’ Group D match at the World Cup.
Stojkovic stopped the 60th-minute kick after Nemanja Vidic received a yellow card for a handball.
Germany had been a man down since the 37th minute, when Miroslav Klose was sent off for a second yellow card for a rough tackle. Serbia forward Milan Jovanovic scored just a minute later and nearly had a second goal when he rattled a post with a shot in the 67th.
Spanish referee Alberto Undiano handed out nine yellow cards, the most so far in any game at the 2010 tournament.
