Lionel SCALONI and Pablo Aimar’s ’s boys left it late, very late, winning the final 2-1 against Russia. Argentina fell behind early after Igor DIVEEV scored in the 11th minute. However, Facundo COLIDIO drew Argentina level just minutes later.

No goals in the second half meant extra-time. The first half of extra-time didn’t bring any goals and just as Argentina were looking to head towards a second consecutive penalty shootout, Alan MARINELLI gave Argentina the lead which proved to be the eventual tournament winner in the second half of extra-time.
