Germany - Spain Live Commentary

90' It's all over and Spain have reached their first ever World Cup final after defeating Germany 1-0 thanks to Carles Puyol's bullet header. It wasn't a classic by any means but the Spanish won't care at all - they will now face Holland on Sunday.
90' Spain are experts at this. Despite leading by one goal in the biggest match of their history, they look far from nervy and instead just keep hold of the ball like a practice match.
90' There will be three minutes of stoppage time to be played but it won't be enough for Germany.
90' Spain are trying to walk the ball into the net as they seek the killer second goal. It fails to materialise despite good work from Silva and Iniesta but they're so good in possession that Germany probably won't even get another chance.
89' Torres tries to finish it off himself as he jinks his way down the left side of the area but he's tackled just as he's about to shoot. The resulting corner comes to nothing
88' Time is running out on Germany but they are struggling to create any kind of a chance.
87' A tired Pedro is taken off to be replaced by Manchester City-bound David Silva.
86' Germany have penalty appeals when Schweinsteiger goes to ground but the referee isn't interested and waves them away.
85' The free kick is lofted high into the box but Spain get it clear and it's all rather desperate from Germany now.
84' Alonso makes a good challenge on Ozil but the referee awards a free kick around 40 yards from goal.
83' Will the Spanish live to regret that? It was a wasted opportunity but Germany just don't look like scoring at the other end.
82' Spain come forward on the counter and it's two on one as Pedro dribbles into the box with Torres in support. He must pass it to Torres but instead he tries to go past Friedrich on his own and fails.
81' Spain also make a change, with Villa coming off and Fernando Torres coming on.
80' Germany make their final change with Khedira coming off to be replaced by striker Mario Gomez.
79' Villa races forward through on goal as he looks to seal the victory but Arne Friedrich gets back well to make a crucial challenge on the edge of the box.
78' Kroos takes the corner but the towering figure of Pique clears again. What a rock he's been tonight.
77' Germany are running out of time if they're to force extra-time. Down the left they come now and manage to win a corner.
76' Kroos floats it high into the box for Klose to get on the end of but Casillas gets there first.
75' Germany have a chance to bounce back immediately with a free kick around 30 yards from goal after Alonso fouled Khedira.
74' After all that passing, who would have thought the goal would come from a corner!
73' GOAL PUYOL - Xavi's in-swinging cross hangs in the air for Puyol to power home an unstoppable header into the net! Spain finally have the lead and their dreams of a place in their first ever World Cup final are now well and truly alive.
73' It doesn't take long for Spain to get back in possession and they win a corner down the left.
72' Ozil takes the corner but Spain deal with it well.
71' Once again Kroos delivers a curling cross towards Klose and Pique does well to head behind for a corner. Now Germany are on the front foot.
70' Kroos swings a high ball into the box but Pique clears the danger for the time being at least.
69' Germany have a promising free kick on the left after Ramos fouls Podolski.
68' Great chance for Germany as a Podolski cross finds Kroos inside the box but the substitute's rather scuffed shot is saved by Casillas.
67' Villa has the ball at his feet on the right side of the box and his shot from a tight angle is comfortably saved by Neuer.
66' Joan Capdevila finds space down the left but his cross is hacked away by Mertesacker.
65' The pressure is building all the time on Germany and you just wonder when or if their defence will finally crack.
64' Spain get forward again with Iniesta but his chipped pass into the box drifts behind for a goal kick.
62' An in-swinging cross into the box from the left wing looks for Ramos but under pressure from the unlikely figure of Podolski, he can't make a connection.
61' Germany make another change with Toni Kroos coming on to replace Trochowski.
60' An acrobatic overhead shot from Klose on the edge of the box loops high over the bar - but it shows Germany still have potential to create a chance of their own despite the pressure from Spain.
59' Germany now get forward but Jansen's cross is cleared away by Pique.
58' That was much better from Spain, and they now look much hungrier in possession. Pedro has another shot from distance which goes just a couple of yards wide.
57' All of a sudden Spain pick up the pace with a powerful long range Pedro effort forcing Neuer into a fine save. Moments later they cut through Germany's defence with a string of decisive passes, but Iniesta's low pass across the face of goal just evades the outstretched feet of Villa and Pedro.
56' To say this semi-final has been disappointing is an understatement. I did predict an "anti-climatic 2-0 win for Spain" so at least the first two words of that prediction looks spot on. But that is no consolation, we all want something to shout about soon.
55' The pattern of play hasn't changed from the first half really. A few more actual shots but nothing to get too excited about.
54' Villa has a sight at goal just outside the box but his shot bounces wide of the post.
52' Germany make their first change with Marcell Jansen replacing Boateng. That substitution will no doubt raise more than a few eyebrows.
51' Well at least we've seen some noteworthy shots on goal - hopefully a sign of things to come.
50' Alonso has another rasping drive at goal from distance and this time it's much closer, flashing past the post with Neuer a beaten man.
49' Pedro goes on a brilliant run down the right wing, keeping hold of it despite plenty of German pressure, but when he plays it back to Alonso around 25 yards from goal, the midfielder fires a low shot wide.
48' Trochowski has a long range shot blocked by Pique as Germany look to stamp their mark on this second half.
47' Spain make progress down the right but another aimless cross - this time from Pedro - drifts out of play on the other side of the pitch. I'm baffled by all these crosses when they have such little presence in the box.
46' Right, we're back underway in Durban with both sides looking to make the breakthrough in this second World Cup semi-final. The winner will, of course, take on Holland on Sunday.
' Andrew Selby says: "You say "it's tough to call a winner". The commentator on the TV here has said just that after 45 mins Spain "is dominating". A bit of disparity in the analysis? I'm watching it as a neutral here - I'd say that you're spot on." Well, thank you very much!
' Regarding that Ozil incident at the end of the half, Russell Yates says: "Looked like a penalty on the replay in France." I've seen them given, but he did seemingly slip at the same time as being caught by Ramos so you can understand why the referee didn't give it.
' Farhan Ahmed says: "As the first half goes, it looks like that both teams are not willing to take chances. I think a single goal will decide the fate of this semi-final, and I would love to see Spain score this goal."
' Spain are still Sky Bet's favourites to win this one inside 90 minutes at 13/8 while Germany are 11/4 with the draw priced at 6/5. The Spanish are now 8/13 to qualify for the final with Germany drifting slightly to 6/5. My pre-match tip of Spain to win 2-0 is now 9/1 and I'm still pretty confident that will come in, even though they didn't create many chances. Head now to www.skybet.com to place your bets.
' A nervous Liam Ferguson is back and says: "I am breathing a bit easier after that first half. Spain have been passing brilliant, they have been creating chances. All they need is to put them chances away. So far Sergio Ramos has been the best player on the pitch, it seems to me that he has created the most chances, the only thing I would say is David Villa to get in more space and then he will get that goal."
45' That's the last action of the half and we head into the interval with the score level at 0-0. There have been very few chances for either side and it's tough to call a winner if this continues. Maybe it will go all the way to penalties. Let me know your half-time thoughts by emailing me at
45' At the other end Pedro tries his luck from just outside the box but his powerful effort is straight at Neuer.
45' Ozil goes to ground inside the box after his foot was seemingly caught by Ramos but the referee says no penalty. On the replays it's still not clear if the incident actually occurred inside or outside the box.
44' Xavi crosses the ball into the box but once again it's the same old story - Germany clear it.
43' Spain embark on a decent move which ends with Pedro inside the box, but he tries to dribble for far too long and eventually is attempted dinked cross is put behind by Boateng for a corner.
42' Ramos gets down the right wing and delivers another cross but Per Mertesacker heads it away.
41' Spain have a promising free kick around 40 yards out after Jerome Boateng fouls Iniesta but Xavi opt to play it short and it comes to nothing.
40' A cross from the left is easily dealt with by Germany's defence. The crowd are very quiet due to the lack of goalmouth activity.
39' Although Spain haven't got the pulses races tonight, or previously in this tournament, you just sense they are just a moment away from carving out a chance for the red-hot Villa, who has hardly touched the ball tonight.
38' Ozil tries to wriggle his way through the Spain defence but he's closed down swiftly and effectively.
37' This match has so far failed to live up to the hype. Let's hope someone can spark it into life soon.
36' Bastian Schweinsteiger bursts clear down the left wing as he chases a cross-field pass but the offside flag is raised.
35' Trochowski curls the ball high into the box but Casillas makes good contact on his punch to clear the danger.
34' A lovely pass from Sami Khedira down the left wing finds Ozil, who wins a corner when his cross is blocked behind by Puyol.
33' Ozil swings the resulting corner into the box but Klose can't quite get his head to it and Spain can clear.
32' The Germans move forward and Trochowski hits a fierce shot from range which forces Casillas into a finger-tip save round the post.
31' Xavi tries to find space to shoot outside the box but the ball is nicked away from him at the last moment and Germany can break.
30' Xabi Alonso goes for goal from distance but it's never on target and drifts well wide.
29' I think Germany are guilty of paying Spain too much respect. If they want to win this game, they have to force their style of play on the game - they can't just sit back and let Spain keep the ball like this. We've seen very few signs of their counter-attacking flair.
28' Play continues without Podolski, who is receiving treatment on the sidelines.
27' Lukas Podolski is in pain after Ramos stood on his foot with a late challenge in midfield. No card has been shown though.
26' Pedro goes for an ambitious scissor-kick style volley outside the box but he doesn't catch it right the ball loops high into the air.
25' My colleague Nick Hext has said to me it's like a game of chess at the moment and I'm inclined to agree with him.
24' Klose twists and turns on the edge of the box as he looks to make room for a shot, but he's crowded out and the chance has gone.
23' Spain take it short but in the end a pretty poor cross into the box is easily headed clear by Germany.
22' Iniesta embarks on a jinking run on the left wing and manages to win Spain a corner.
21' Little in the way of real drama at the moment, but if this Spanish pressure continues then an opening goal can't be too far away.
' Ian Walters says: "With Holland's win yesterday we are guaranteed a European winner - the first time a European team has won the World Cup outside of Europe." You are indeed correct. And Phil Hoole adds: "You heard it first right here from Ginnell, Iowa, USA...Germany wins this easily 3-1." I'm not so sure!
19' Sergio Ramos breaks down the right wing but his attempted shot is never going to trouble Neuer as he slices it well wide.
18' On this evidence it is clear Germany won't be able to rip through Spain like they did to England and Argentina. Their opponents are far too organised and won't let the Germans see enough of the ball to work similar magic.
17' Trochowski swings the corner into the box but this time Casillas comes and punches clear. The ball comes back to the German but his next cross goes behind for a goal kick.
16' The resulting cross is curled into the box and a flapping Casillas just about manages to palm the ball behind for another corner.
15' That said Joachim Low's side attack down the right and win a corner.
14' Germany are working so hard but they have barely had any opportunity themselves to get forward.
13' The Spanish are often criticised for keeping the ball for too long, but this time they are much sharper, with Andres Iniesta delivering a dangerous cross for Carles Puyol to head over from close range.
11' Spain's passing is simply sublime right now and Germany have to maintain high levels of defensive concentration to deal with it. If they take their eye off the ball for one moment, they can be punished.
10' Piotr Trochowski tries to slot a pass through the middle for Mesut Ozil but the offside flag is raised. Replays suggest it was a very close call.
9' Miroslav Klose battles hard with Gerard Pique down the left wing but the big defender just about manages to shrug him off and play the ball back to Iker Casillas. Klose doesn't give up though and rushes the goalkeeper into a hasty clearance.
8' Everytime you look up, the red shirts have possession of the ball. It does seem a similar pattern to the Euro 2008 final.
7' It's a really bright opening from the Spanish, who are looking cool and composed on the ball while they've already proved their eye for the killer pass.
6' A superb throughball from Pedro cuts open the Germany defence but Manuel Neuer is quickly off his line to save David Villa's shot. Early warning sign for the Germans.
' Andy Horton from Shoreham-by-Sea says: "As I predicted Germany add a midfielder Piotr Trochowski in place of Muller. Ozil will be the important man for this match for Germany and Busquets for Spain. Germany to win in extra time."
4' A fan has incredibly managed to run onto the pitch to cause this match to halt for a few moments. That's the last of the action he'll be watching.
3' It's a cagey opening few minutes here but that's always to be expected when the stakes are so high. Spain are hogging possession but Germany seem content to hold firm in these early stages.
2' Of course if Spain win tonight it will guarantee a new World Cup winner, although Germany haven't tasted glory since 1990, as West Germany, so you could say they've waited long enough too.
1' Germany get this semi-final showdown underway in Durban hoping to spring another surprise against World Cup favourites Spain.
' Just before the action gets under way, Farhan Ahmed says: "Love to see Spain win today, the time has been come for Spain to step up and write their name in history books. Germans will be the tough but the Spainish Bull will hit them hard. I think Spain will win 3-1 today."
' While the national anthems are ringing out around the Moses Mabhida in Durban, Liam Ferguson writes in to say: "I am very nervous about this game. Germany could spoil the party for me. I have money on a Spain v Holland final so i am hoping that Spain can pull through for me like Holland done last night." I'm afraid my wife has money on a Spain v Germany final so she'll be hoping your wish doesn't come true!
' Ben Gaunt has emailed in to say: "Pretty excited about this one! I predicted, before the World Cup started, that Klose would beat Ronaldo's record, and Spain would win the World Cup... wish I'd put some money on! I predict a tight Spain victory. The German side have won convincingly, but both England and Argentina defended very poorly - this German team are excellent at counter-attacking, so grabbing the first goal for them is essential. If Spain score first (and I think they will) I think they'll keep men behind the ball, and the Germans won't be able to find a way through."
' Sky Bet are reporting that all the money is for Germany ahead of tonight's clash and make them 15/8 to claim victory inside 90 minutes although Spain are the favourites at 6/4, with the draw available at 11/4. The 2008 European champions are 4/5 to qualify for their first ever World Cup final with Germany priced at evens. It's no surprise that lone forward David Villa is a short looking 4/1 chance to score the opening goal but punters are looking at Miroslav Klose at 6/1. Punters are also expecting goals too with 6/5 over 2.5 goals heavily backed. Those of you who followed my commentary of Greece v Nigeria earlier in the tournament will know my correct scoreline tips are definitely worth following! So this time I'm going for an anti-climatic 2-0 victory for Spain, which is priced at 14/1. As much as I've been impressed by Germany, I think Spain are just too strong at keeping possession and will probably grind down the Germans and edge through. Head now to www.skybet.com to place your bets.
' Spain, by contrast, haven't really set this World Cup alight but still head into this encounter as marginal bookies' favourites due to the awesome talents at their disposal. The 2008 European champions, who defeated Germany in that final in Vienna, shockingly lost their opening group game to Switzerland but since then recovered to reach the last 16 with victories over Honduras and Chile, before edging past both Portugal and Paraguay 1-0. Their quarter-final triumph over the South American outfit was rather fortunate when you consider Oscar Cardozo missed a penalty at 0-0, while David Villa's winning goal struck both posts before creeping over the line! Spain, bidding to reach their first ever World Cup final, have only scored six goals, with Villa grabbing five of them to be joint leader in the race for the golden boot, but have only conceded two. They do pass and retain the ball better than anyone else so you wouldn't have thought Germany will be able to rip through them in the same way they managed against England and Argentina. It's sure to be a fascinating semi-final and if you want to share your views before or during it then the email address you need is .
' It's been a thrilling journey so far for the free-scoring Germans, who smashed four goals past both England and Argentina in their previous two knockout games, and it's fair to say they head into this encounter as the team of the tournament. Joachim Low's predominantly young side have scored more goals than any other team (seven more than Spain) having struck 13 times in five games while the manner of their attacking performances have won many new admirers across the globe. They've clicked as a unit and the combination of youthful starlets such as Mesut Ozil and Thomas Muller (suspended tonight) with the more experienced heads of Bastian Schweinsteiger and veteran striker Miroslav Klose has worked a treat. Indeed, 32-year-old Klose has answered his pre-tournament critics in emphatic fashion, firing four goals to take his career World Cup finals tally to 14 - just one behind Ronaldo's all-time record of 15 - despite missing one game following his first-half sending off during the 1-0 defeat against Serbia in the group stages - incidentally the only match Germany have failed to win. He'll be hoping to at least draw level with the Brazilian's mark tongiht.
' Fernando Torres has been dropped to the bench by Spain having failed to score in the World Cup so far. It's the only change that coach Vicente del Bosque has made to the team that overcame Paraguay in the quarter-final, bringing in Barcelona forward Pedro for the Liverpool striker. Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas had been in the running to start instead of Torres too but his knock in training on Monday may have counted against him. Meanwhile Germany are without the suspended Thomas Muller - who had scored four goals in five games - and he was replaced by Piotr Trochowski. Tonight's referee is Viktor Kassai from Hungary.
' The Germany team is: Neuer, Lahm, Friedrich, Mertesacker, Boateng, Khedira, Schweinsteiger, Trochowski, Ozil, Podolski, Klose. Subs: Wiese, Jansen, Aogo, Tasci, Kiessling, Badstuber, Kroos, Cacau, Marin, Gomez, Butt.
' The Spain team is: Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Pique, Puyol, Capdevila, Busquets, Alonso, Iniesta, Xavi, Pedro, Villa. Subs: Valdes, Albiol, Marchena, Torres, Fabregas, Mata, Arbeloa, Llorente, Javi Martinez, Silva, Jesus Navas, Reina.
' Welcome to our live commentary from tonight's mouthwatering World Cup clash in Durban as Germany and Spain do battle for a place in Sunday's final against Holland. I'm sure, like us, you're expecting plenty of drama tonight so please send all you're pre-match views and predictions to me at .
