Argentina vs Nigeria

On six minutes, an unmarked Gabriel Heinze dived forward to head Juan Sebastián Verón's corner kick.[5] Argentine Lionel Messi had numerous chances following that, but on each occasion Nigerian goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama was able to keep the margin down to one.[6] Enyeama's saves earned him the man of the match award. Post-match, Argentine coach Diego Maradona said he was confident his side would perform well in the future.[6]

Argentina vs South Korea

Argentina took the lead when Lionel Messi's free kick from the left was turned into the Korean goal by Korean player Park Chu-young.[8] A free kick was awarded on the left, and Messi's cross was headed in by Gonzalo Higuaín. In first half injury time, Korea cut the deficit when Lee Chung-yong tackled Martín Demichelis to score.[8] Two goals from Argentina in the second half sealed a 4-1 win. Messi's shot was first saved by goalkeeper Jung Sung-ryong; his second shot hit the post before Higuaín shot the ball into an unguarded net.[9] Higuaín completed his hat-trick by heading in a cross from substitute Sergio Agüero.[9]
