Germany vs Argentina is at 10 am ET on Saturday, July 3. Germany is favored because of Argentina's poor coaching, weak defense, and tendency to underperform at the World Cup.
Argentina easily beat Greece, even after coach Diego Maradona decided to rest seven starters. Argentina will now face Mexico in the second round, setting the scene for a spectacular rematch of their 2006 face-off.
Gonzalo Higuaín scored three goals alone, lifting Argentina over South Korea and showing that they are serious contenders in the South Africa World Cup.
In Argentina vs. Nigeria, Argentina's narrow 1-0 victory might have been greater but for Nigerian keeper Vincent Enyema's outstanding match. Argentina next faces South Korea, which easily beat Greece 2-0.
