Group C Match

Argentina vs Serbia & Montenegro

Previous Encounters:
Argentina and Serbia-Montengro have never met before in international competition before the Germany 2006 World Cup finals, although the South Americans did beat the former Yugoslavia on penalaties, in Florence (0:0aet), at the quarter-final stage of Italy 1990.

The Match:
It only took a little over five minutes for Javier Saviola to slip a pass in from the left, for Maxi Rodr�guez to put Argentina in front; against Serbia & Montenegro, in Gelsenkirchen.

Substitute Esteban Cambiasso doubled Argentina's lead just after the half-hour, when Hern�n Crespo's back-heel to him was the culmination of twenty four passes by Argentina.

Five minutes before half-time, Saviola won the ball off a defender, near the right corner flag, and ran into the area. As his shot was palmed away by Dragoslav Jevric, Maxi Rodriguez was on hand at the far post to slam home his second goal of the game; in off the woodwork.

Half-time: (3:0).

Serbia & Montenegro tried to gain some initiative by bringing on Danijel Ljuboja for Ognjen Koroman, who will miss the next game for picking up two yellow cards, just after half-time.

Riquelme and Sorin continued to Tango, as Argentina totally dominated the game.

Mateja Kezman was getting more and frustrated as the game went on and his two-footed challenge earned him a red card in the 65th minute.

Diego Maradona led the cheering when Lionel Messi finally made his World Cup appearance, fifteen minutes before the end.

With twelve minutes to go, Messi ran the ball into the area, down the left side, and crossed low for Hernan Crespo to score Argentina's fourth goal; at the far post.

Carlos Tevez continued the Argentina rout when he beat two defenders on the left, to calmly roll the ball past Jevric; six minutes from time.

Messi added his name to the scoresheet, as Argentina continued to press forward with short, quick passing moves forward.

This is what World Cup football is all about.
