WC2010 Quarterfinals 3 & 4 : Video Highlights

Spain 1 Paraguay 0
Spain vs Paraguay was nice and controlled for most of the game, with Spain passing and Paraguay defending, and most of us expecting penalty kicks in the end. But then it came to life between the 58th and 60th minutes, when both teams had a penalty saved by the opposition keeper, and everyone woke up. After a somewhat dull first half, this few short minutes of madness was enough to lift the game to a level of genuine excitement, which Spain went on to win 1-0 with the David Villa's goal.

Germany 4 Argentina 0
Argentina had their moments of nice passing and both Leo Messi and Carlos Tevez struck a few shots, but nothing that really troubled Manuel Nueur. No matter how many extra attacking talents Maradona threw into the mix – Sergio Aguero and Javier Pastore for example – the shape of the game was basically the same: Germany were solid enough to sit back and then hit Argentina on the break.
