Match Commentary

95' Argentina's quality going forward cannot be disputed but they are still questionable at the back in my opinion, as demonstrated by Hernandez's goal. Germany, as they showed today, will pose a big threat to them on Saturday.
94' Comment from John Brewin at Soccer City: The bear-hugging has begun again. Another win for Argentina. Yet again, we wonder what might have been without the idiocy of the refereeing systems put in place but, like England, Mexico did not respond positively to their plight.
94' Four years ago Argentina beat Mexico in the second round before they went out to Germany in the quarters on penalties. A chance for revenge on Saturday.
