PORT ELIZABETH, SOUTH AFRICA (AP) - Uruguay and Germany are tied 2-2 with 15 minutes left of a pulsating third-place playoff at the World Cup on Saturday.

Uruguay came from behind to lead 2-1 when striker Diego Forlan volleyed in Egidio Arevalo’s 51st-minute cross for his fifth goal of the tournament.

But Germany defender Marcell Jansen tied it five minutes later with a header after goalkeeper Fernando Muslera misjudged a cross.

Thomas Mueller opened the scoring for Germany in the 18th minute _ also his fifth goal at the World Cup _ sweeping the ball home after Bastian Schweinsteiger’s swerving shot was stopped by Muslera.

Edinson Cavani then equalized for Uruguay in the 28th when he slid a shot past Hans Joerg Butt.
