it only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. In this case, the kick by Diego Forlán that hit the cross bar, was not close enough to tie up the game in order for Uruguay to have extra time against Germany. Sadly, that slightly too high kick won Germany the Bronze medal in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
The World Cup this year certainly was amazing. It was more than thrilling when the soccer "giants" Brazil and Argentina were both eliminated fouling up their plans for a finals match against one another, only to see the under dog South American country of Uruguay advance through to the 3rd place match. Even though they lost, it was a great game if I may say so myself.
