Argentina 6 – 0 Serbia Montenegro was the score at the 2006 World Cup.
Eleven years ago. June 16, 2006, it’s been eleven years since that magical day in Gelsenkirchen. A day where Jose PEKERMAN’s Argentina played Serbia and Montenegro off the pitch. It was men against boys out there and the men were lead by Juan Roman RIQUELME.
The biggest scoreline at the 2006 World Cup, five different goalscorers for Argentina, three goals from all three substitutes, one goal of the tournament candidate and a ten out of ten performance.
What more can you say from a match which made a fans dream. A match which put the ghosts of the 2002 World Cup behind us.
Maxi RODRIGUEZ twice, Esteban CAMBIASSO with that goal, Hernan CRESPO with his second goal in his second match, Carlos TEVEZ with his solo goal and Lionel MESSI with his first World Cup goal.
The team was Roberto ABBONDANZIERI; Nicolas BURDISSO, Roberto AYALA, Gabriel HEINZE, Juan Pablo SORIN; Javier MASCHERANO; Luis GONZALEZ, Juan Roman RIQUELME, Maxi RODRIGUEZ; Javier SAVIOLA and Hernan CRESPO
The substitutes? Esteban CAMBIASSO with a goal, Carlos TEVEZ with a goal and Lionel MESSI with a goal.
Here are the match highlights and one RIQUELME compilation. Regarding RIQUELME, my favorite moments are at 5:40, 6:05, 7:23 and 8:40 in the compilation.
