Germany routs Argentina, 4-0

Jul 03, 2010 - Cape Town, South Africa - MIROSLAV KLOSE (GER) and JAVIER MASCHERANO (ARG). Germany beat Argentina 4-0 to win their Quarter Final match during the FIFA World Cup 2010 at Green Point Stadium in Cape Town.

Who said there’s no scoring in soccer?

Germany humiliated Argentina and loudmouth Maradona with a 4-0 thrashing that will be long-remembered in Argentina. There’s plenty of bad blood between the two sides, and Maradona was all to happy to shoot his mouth off in the days leading up to the match.

Germany is always respected as a legitimate contender, but this young side is playing much better than many experts predicted. They’re gelling as a team, and the goals have been text book displays of ball movement.

Argentina on the other hand has has a lethal attack but they were exposed on defense. Jeremy Shapp reported on the ESPN broadcast that the Germans were prepared to take advantage of the failure of Argentine attackers to get back quickly on defense.

The result was ugly for Argentina and beautiful for the Germans, who might be facing Spain in the semi-finals.Germ
