  • Description

    ARGENTINE CLINCHED A QUARTER FINAL PLACE IN THE WORLD CUP WHEN THEY CRUISED HOME TO A 2-0 VICTORY OVER SWITZERLAND IN THE GROUP TWO MATCH AT SHEFFIELD TONIGHT (TUESDAY).

    ARGENTINE STRIKERS ARTIME AND ONEGA SECURED VICTORY WITH GOALS IN THE 52ND AND 82ND MINUTES....A VICTORY WHICH BROUGHT THE ARGENTINE POINT TALLY TO FIVE FROM THREE MATCHES.

    THROUGHOUT THE NINETY MINUTES, THE PARTY TIME PLAYERS OF THE SWISS TEAM WERE NO MATCH FOR THE SMOOTH AND PROFESSIONAL ARGENTINIANS.

    UNLIKE ARGENTINE'S LAST MATCH - GOALLESS DRAW WITH WEST GERMANY IN BIRMINGHAM LAST SATURDAY - TONIGHT'S GAME WAS DEVOID OF STORMY SCENES AND DESTRUCTIVE TACKLING.

    THE SOUTH AMERICANS WERE ON THEIR BEST BEHAVIOUR AND ADOPTED SAFETY-FIRST TACTICS RELYING ON THEIR SOLID DEFENCE.

    BUT IN THE 52ND MINUTE THE PERSISTENCE OF 27-YEAR-OLD STRIKER ARTIME PAID OFF. HE FOUGHT OFF TACKLES AGAINST THREE DEFENDERS TO SCORE IN OFF THE POST.

    AND IT SEEMED FITTING THAT ONEGA, ARGENTINE'S BUSTLING SPEARHEAD, SHOULD SCORE THE SECOND WHEN HE FASTENED ON TO A PASS 20 YARDS (18 METRES) OUT AND RAN ON TO FLICK THE BALL OVER GOALKEEPER EICHMANN'S HANDS.
