Argentina easily beat Greece, even after coach Diego Maradona decided to rest seven starters. Argentina will now face Mexico in the second round, setting the scene for a spectacular rematch of their 2006 face-off.
Argentina today beat Greece 2-0 in Polokwane to become the first side to win all their group games. It sets up a tantalizing second round World Cup meeting with Mexico, the side they beat at the same stage four years ago.
Argentina will be favored to overcome Mexico and advance to the quarter finals. In today's match, even when Argentine coach Diego Maradona rested seven starters, his team was once again in full command.
However, much of the team's future rests on the back of Lionel Messi.
Even though he personally failed to score, he was again outstanding for the Argentines today in setting up goals. The pint-sized striker must be wondering what he has to do to get his name on the scoresheet in South Africa.
