Argentina 4-1 South Korea

The Line-Ups:

Argentina: 22-Sergio Romero; 2-Martin Demichelis, 13-Walter Samuel, 6-Gabriel Heinze, 17-Jonas Gutierrez; 14-Javier Mascherano, 20-Maxi Rodriguez, 7-Angel Di Maria; 10-Lionel Messi, 11-Carlos Tevez, 9-Gonzalo Higuain.

South Korea: 18-Jung Sung-ryong; 2-Oh Beom-seok, 12-Lee Young-pyo, 4-Cho Yong-hyung, 14-Lee Jung-soo, 8-Kim Jung-woo, 16-Ki Sung-yong, 7-Park Ji-sung, 17-Lee Chung-yong, 10-Park Chu-young, 19-Yeom Ki-hun.

Argentina just booked the place into the second round of this World Cup providing a convincing win over South Korea.

Going into the first 15 minutes and Messi delivers a free-kick into the box that was awfully rejected by Park Chu-young into the own net meaning the South Americans were ahead early in the match.

We just had to wait 15 minutes to see Argentina increase the lead, 2-0, when another set-piece from the Albiceleste was masterly converted into goal. This time through a header from Higuain that was on a goal spree today.

This World Cup will be remembered because of the goals scored through counter-attack situations and South Korea had one in such approach today. 46 minutes and Lee Chung-yong takes advantage of the huge mistake from Demichelis and strikes past Romero. 2-1.

In the last 15 minutes of the match we saw the Higuain Show. Messi was supposed to have this goal but Jung Sung-ryong denied him and alongside the post made Messi effort individually useless just to see fellow Higuain to tap in from close range when he had nothing else to do rather than score that easy goal.

2 minutes later Messi again on the move passes to Aguero that using his outside of the boot finds Higuain to deliver a hat-trick.
