It was a day of history repeating itself! First, the Germans met the English – a la 1966, albeit with quite different results, and then the Argentinians met their old foes, the Mexicans as they did on the two occasions the latter hosted the World Cup: 1986 and 1990.

More from the Daily Mail:

Argentina set up a rematch of their 1986 and 1990 World Cup finals with Germany when they beat Mexico 3-1 in their second round match in Soccer City on Sunday.

As in Germany’s 4-1 defeat of England earlier, the game suffered a first half refereeing controversy when Carlos Tevez headed in Argentina’s 26th minute opener. Television replays proved he was two yards offside.

Gonzalo Higuain capitalised on a defensive mistake to guide home the second seven minutes later and Tevez made sure with a stunning drive in the 52nd minute. Javier Hernandez scored a 71st minute consolation for Mexico with a super turn and shot.

Argentina now meet Germany in the quarter-finals on Saturday in Cape Town. Argentina, captained by their current coach Diego Maradona, beat West Germany to win the 1986 World Cup but finished runners-up to the same team four years later.
