    That was a brilliant strike! Goal of the tournament so far.

    Marvellous game, tension filled. Watched it with my Argentinean rugby mates and when Maxi scored even I went ape ****, unbelievable strike.
    Pretty confident of a fairly comfortable Argentinean win but my friends said from the outset it would be a tight game and that Mexico know Argentina probably better than any other team in the World Cup and they were right. If Mexico just had that je ne sais quoi upfront it could have been so different though Rafael Marquez was immense for Mexico, had both Crespo and Saviola pretty much in his pocket unfortunately Argentina had Tevez and Messi in reserve.

    You’re a harsh taskmaster my friend, IMO I doubt any GK in the world would have got anywhere near it.

    I like Argentina’s second against Serbia (and Joe’s strike against Sweden) but for sheer significance I think your right.

    Difference, the ball played to Cole's was far easier to control and second and most importantly no one was in sight of him. Also the GK (on this occasion) could have and possibly should have saved Cole's strike considering he got a pretty decent hand to it and under your guidelines of good GK had plenty of time to see it.

    But the distance means it was a lot easier for the GK to see it and get to it, which makes the strike more impressive.

    How does it, when a better GK or even a fit Isaksson would (should) have saved it.

    Cole's goal was good, but there have been plenty that have been equally impressive imo...

    Goal of the tournament for me is the second Argentina goal against Serbia, followed by tonight's Maxi shot and then Cole's against Sweden. Another awesome goal that hasn't been mentioned much is the team effort that Torres (I think) finished against Ukraine. Fourth Spain goal I believe. We've certainly had a lot of stunners though.

    Amazes me that great goals like Deco's against Iran and Cahill's against Japan probably wouldn't even make the top 10 now.

    Because he managed to put in near enough the exact spot where it's nigh on impossible to save it?

    Phillip Lahm's goal is one that i've not heard mentioned in awhile. That was something a bit special too.

    So did Maxi's strike but lets agree to disagree Matteh. It is late, I have things to do and I am sure you have better things to do than pedantically argue about two equally good goals.
