June 27, 2010 - South Africa - Football - Argentina v Mexico FIFA World Cup Second Round - South Africa 2010 - Soccer City Stadium, Johannesburg, South Africa - 27/6/10..Carlos Tevez celebrates after scoring Argentina's first goal.

Tevez Brace Takes Argentina through

Argentina has booked themselves a Quarter final clash with old foes Germany with a 3-1 controversial win over Mexico. This will be a repeat of last World cup's Quarter Final clash in which Argentina surprisingly went out in penalties. Lionel Messi once again failed to score a goal coming very close, only to see Tevez steal that goal. By the end of the match there were a herd of senior players, especially Heinze trying to console him and keep his spirits up. The match had its fair share of controversies with the first goal. Tevez looked clearly offside while he scored the goal but the linesman thought otherwise. Mexico then gifted Argentina's Higuain his fourth goal of the tournament, you have to appreciate his calmness in rounding off the keeper. And then in the second half, Tevez scored his second with a stunning kick from outside the box.

Mexico started well, hitting the crossbar early on. But we all knew it was a matter of time for Argentina to score. After the third goal Argentina went defensive, even Maradona was surprised by that. After that there were a wave of atatck from Mexico with one being finished by Javier Hernandez. The way he turned past Demechelis, shoudl force Maradona to pair Samuel along with Burdisso against Germany. Otamendi looked far more composed than Guitterez in early matches. The only drawback is that Messi didn't score but that could work in Maradona's favour as he looked hell hungry for a goal early on and a bit frustrated by the end also. Tevez returning to sublime for means Argentina has a fully firing front two. The clash between Argentina and Germany could be be one of the best in the World Cup.

England Suffers a Royal German Thrashing

Jun 27, 2010 - Bloemfontein, South Africa - German players celebrate their 4:1 victory and reaching the final eight after their match against England during the FIFA World Cup Round of 16 in Mangaung / Bloemfontein. Germany won 4-1.

Pre-Tournament favourites England suffered a Royal thrashing at the hands of a yound German side. The 4-1 score in the end does justice to Germany's way of playing and England's struggle in the World Cuyp. It had a bigger share of controversy with a disallowed goal from Frank Lampard. Had that goal stood England would have had some serious momentum and could have seen a different result. But in the end with so many stars misfiring, they deserved to go out of the tournament. The sad fact was to see Rooney once again struggling in the England jersey.It was something like the fears of Rooney in the Nike ad coming true. Germany - Argentina could become yet another classics. But it is very clear that Messi ahs to be at his best and should find the net too for Argentina to get past the Germans.
