World Cup Day 16 - Argentina, Germany progress

Argentina and Germany set up a quarter-final showdown after coming through their last sixteen games yesterday.

By all accounts the Germany game was a little one sided and overall a comfortable afternoons progress for the hosts, who have built up some momentum over the tournament and cannot be discounted from having a genuine shot at making the last four at the very least. It should now be a fascinating match-up against Argentina.

BBC Match report.

Argentina - as expected, made it through but it was far closer and harder than anticipated. Mexico, whilst enjoying a high FIFA ranking didn't overly impress in the group stages but came out flying at the Argentinians and took the lead early, only for Crespo to equalise shortly after. Ultimately it took an extra time goal from Maxi Rodriguez to seal the win with the Mexicans counting themselves unfortunate that they ran into Argentina so soon.
