ARGENTINA 2-1 MEXICO a.e.t.

Argentina needed extra-time and a wonder strike from Maxi Rodriguez to give them a 2-1 victory over Mexico and a place in the quarter-finals of Germany 2006 in Leipzig on Saturday, 24 June 2006.

After a fast and furious start, Mexico took the lead with just five minutes on the clock. Pavel Pardo’s free-kick from the right was flicked on by Mario Mendez and Rafael Marquez slid the ball home at the far post.

It took just five minutes for the Albiceleste to draw level. Juan Riquelme’s corner from the right was touched in by Hernan Crespo and despite a series of chances for both sides, 1-1 was how it stayed for the remaining 80 minutes of normal time.

In the 98th minute, Juan Sorin’s cross-field pass was chested down by Rodriguez and the Atletico Madrid man fired home a left-footed volley to book his side a date with Germany in Berlin’s Olympiastadion on 30 June.
