Argentina win the first position after 0-0 draw with the Netherlands

Share |

It was one of the most expected derbies in this World Cup but they didn't even score a goal. The Netherlands and Argentina got a 0-0 draw and advanced into the knockout stage of the World Cup, while Cote d'Ivoire and Serbia and Montenegro played just for the honor.

Even though there were glimpses of brilliance from both teams, the Netherlands and Argentina seemed content to see the match out for the draw, having already qualified for the last 16 after winning their opening two encounters in the group.

It's interesting to know that in the last attack of the night, Carlos Tevez got the best chance for Argentina in the injury time when he stabbed the ball to the goal after a group of dazzling steps past the Dutch defence, but it missed the target.

"We didn't play the kind of football that we like to play, but we were facing a very strong squad," Argentina coach Perkman admitted.

According to the experts, the Argentines seemingly found their scintillating form in a 6-0 win over Serbia and Montenegro last Friday.

Group C final positions:

Argentina (7)
Netherlands (7)
Ivory Coast (3)
Serbia & Montenegro (0)
