An injury time winner by veteran Martin Palermo kept Argentina's qualification hopes well and truly alive. Argentina was cruising to a victory courtesy of a strike from Higuain but was stunned when Peru equalised in the 89th minute but was saved by a goal from Palermo deep into injury time. In a rain spoiled match Lionel Messi struggled to find his rhythm, but Maradona looked not concerned about it, standing firmly on his belief that Messi is Argentina's "Ace Of Spade". It still puzzles me why Maradona prefers Heinze in the centre defense when he have the likes of Walter Samuel and Zanetti available. But the decision to bring back Aimar proved right as he provided the assist for Higuain goal. I have earlier written about How Maradona should Line-up. In that article I have written why Angel Di Maria should be involved in the midfield and I was proven right by his performance. Argentina lies in fourt place now and a victory at Uruguay will secure their spot in South Africa. Meanwhile France thrashed Feroe Islands 5-0 and has qualified for the play=offs. Serbia has topped the group and booked their place in South Africa. In a very crucial match Sweden went down to Denmark by a solitary goal. This puts Sweden's campaign at risk as Portugal won against Hungary.

Already qualified Spain continued their good form with a 2-1 victory against Armenia. Cesc fabregas and Mata were the goal scorers for Spain. Mean while Ivory Coast secured their place with a 5-0 victory against Burkina Faso. Yaya Toure started the match and scored the third goal in the match. Ex-Barca player Eto was on target for Cameroon as they beat gabon and moved to the top of the group.
