Argentina were gifted a goal when Carlos Tevez was somehow not flagged for offside, but as with England v Germany, it wasn’t a decision that would have changed the outcome of the game; Argentina are a very good side and always looked to have the beating of a decent but limited Mexico.

Now… Argentina v Germany, in what is the most lipsmacking tie of the World Cup so far. Should be a cracker. I call Argentina to win that – as good as Germany are, they have yet to face a really potent team, and that’s exactly how you’d describe Maradona’s buoyant men.
