ARGENTINA 0-0 BRAZIL

The continent’s big two played out their first 0-0 draw since Argentina 1978, anxiety and mutual respect playing major parts in the goalless spectacle. Even so, both sides had their chances and goalkeepers Roberto Abbondanzieri and Julio Cesar were both called into action on several occasions, the Brazilian custodian doing particularly well to deny Lionel Messi in the dying stages. Unhappy with the performance of Dunga’s side, the home fans eloquently expressed their discontent by rising as one to applaud Messi when he was substituted late on.
