Seven changes for Argentina gave the Albiceleste a new team for today’s match against Greece, but with Greece starting in a 5-4-1, Argentina’s World Cup debutantes were unable to break through, leaving the teams drawn 0-0 at halftime.
Greece only had one touch in Argentina’s penalty area, while Argentina kept 78 percent of the possession and had four shots on goal. The closest the Albiceleste came was in the 18th minute, when a left footed shot from Sergio Aguero forced Alexandros Tzorvas into a diving block.
As things stand, Greece will need a victory to get through to the next round, with South Korea also on track for a point against Nigeria. Should Nigeria come back to beat South Korea, Greece can advance with a draw.
Right now, both Greece and South Korea would finish with four points and a -1 goal difference, with Greece being eliminated for having scored two fewer goals.
