FIFA WORLD CUP 2006- Argentina 2 Ivory Coast 1

This is what we call World Cup football. A highly entertaining Group C game
between Argentina and Ivory Coast with both side actacking each other
goal post. In the 24th minute when Crespo scored a classic poacher’s goal.
Henri Michel’s side failed to deal with a Juan Riquelme free-kick and the
Chelsea striker was on hand to turn the loose ball home.


Argentina fans going wild in the 1st goal by Hernan Crespo.



Argentina scored again after 14 mins of play when Juan Riquelme picked out
Saviola with a great pass and the striker produced a beautiful finish to steer
the ball past Jean-Jacques Tizie. Ivory Coast players are claiming Hernan
Crespo was offside but the referee Frank De Bleeckere from Belgium allowed
the goal bcoz he was not interfering play.


Juan Riquelme dribbling two players.

Didier Drogba, Crespo’s team-mate at Chelsea, gave the Ivorians hope with a
goal eight minutes from time, but the South Americans hung on to secure the
three points. In the second half, Argentina changed their tactics with defending
the goal margin and counter actacking at the flank.



Didier Drogba scored the 1 goal which comes a little late.


Argentina held on for a precious victory in a classic end-to-end encounter, but
Ivory Coast were desperately unlucky not to claim in a point in a frenetic finish.
