3rd Minute, Thomas Müller, Germany v Argentina, 2010 World Cup QF

Context

Argentina under the guidance of Diego Maradona reached the quarter finals of the 2010 World Cup with an impressive four wins out of four, they appeared to be in good form even if star player Lionel Messi wasn’t scoring. They faced a Germany side who had impressed in thrashings of Australia and England but had lost to Serbia.

The Goal

A sign of things to come as the Germans take the lead by exposing poor Argentine defending…

What Happened Next?

It ended 4-0 to Germany as the Argentines went all out for an equaliser in the second half but were picked off with ease by the swift counter attacks of the Germans. Germany lost a tight semi-final to eventual champions Spain. Diego Maradona was dismissed. Both teams will be looking to improve this year.
