Germany wins Group D
Despite a setback midway through group play, Germany found a way to win Group D of the 2010 World Cup.
Germany locked up the top spot in the group thanks to a 1-0 win over Ghana on Wednesday.
Germany had 17/20 odds to win the group according to the online sports book Sportsbook.com which means a $100 bet on the Germany will pay out $85.
A 1-0 loss to Serbia in game two of group play put Germany in danger of not reaching the round of 16, but Wednesday’s win over then-group lead Ghana pushed the Germans to the top.
Despite the loss, Ghana will advance to the round of 16 as the second team from Group D. Ghana matched points with Australia but a better goal differential (0 to -3) allows Ghana to move on via tiebreaker.
