    Milan Jovanovic scored one minute after Germany striker Miroslav Klose was ejected Friday, giving Serbia a 1-0 upset win over the three-time World Cup champions. Serbia goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic stopped Lukas Podolski's penalty kick for Germany in the 60th minute, after Nemanja Vidic got a yellow card for a hand ball.

    Spanish referee Alberto Undiano handed out nine yellow cards, the most so far in any game at this year's tournament. Germany played a man down from the 37th minute, when Klose was ejected for getting a second yellow card. Jovanovic scored a minute later to give Serbia its first World Cup win as an independent nation. Both teams now have three points after two games in Group D.
