Friedrich celebrates his goal with Klose, Muller & Mertesacker
The Albiceleste were royally spanked by the very entertaining Germans in their FIFA World Cup 2010 quarter finals encounter. They were soundly beaten 4 - 0 with goals from Muller (3'), Klose (68' & 89') and Friedrich (74'). Lionel Messi was kept at bay while Tevez although plowing hard as usual could not breach the Germans sound the defence.
Muller and Oezil again were the main players in the German team but Bastian Schweinsteiger was the one pulling the strings in the German midfield. He was chosen as the Man of The Match by FIFA.
This loss might signal the end to Argentinian legend, Diego Maradona's reign in charge of Argentina. However, one good thing came out of this loss, we won't have to see him running through the streets naked as he promised earlier if the team won this year's World Cup.
