Both defenses stayed knotted for 90 minutes, and that 0-0 score held through extra time as well. It came down to the dreaded yet exhilarating penalty kicks. Five apiece.
The game began with a tremendous block from the Argentinian goal keeper, firing everyone up. Lionel Messi, one of the world’s superstars, stepped up next and scored for a 1-0 advantage. After each team exchanged goals, Argentina’s goalie made another stop for a huge opportunity. They capitalized, scoring their next two goals to finish without needing their final attempt. That’s where it ended – 4 to 2 over the Dutch.
