Argentina eliminates Mexico again

Mexico was eliminated in the round of 16 for the fifth straight time.
Johannesburg, South Africa (Sports Network) - Carlos Tevez and Gonzalo Higuain scored in a seven-minute stretch midway through the first half, and Argentina beat Mexico, 3-1, on Sunday at Ellis Park Stadium to return to the quarterfinals of the FIFA World Cup.

Tevez added a second goal early in the second half and Javier Hernandez scored Mexico's lone goal in the 71st minute.

"It was a strange and pretty tense match," Argentina coach Diego Maradona said. "We know each other well but we also knew that if we could attack certain areas, then we'd get something out of it, which we did. I think Argentina were the better side over the 90 minutes and we didn't have any real scares. All I can do is congratulate the players because they're doing things well, playing the ball around and enjoying themselves. The team looked comfortable out there, despite the quality of the opposition." continue>>
