World Cup 2010, Argentina Vs. Germany: Arne Friedrich Goal Puts Argentina Away

Arne Friedrich has his first international goal, a surprisingly easy score for Germany, putting the team up 3-0 with one step into the semfinals.

The goal came as midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger beat a number of Argentine defenders through the right side of their  defense, getting to the by line near Sergio Romero's right post before cutting the ball back for Friedrich, still forward after a corner kick.  The central defender's right footed shot into an almost undefended net made the score 3-0 Germany in the 74th minute.

Friedrich had 76 international appearances for Germany before today's quarterfinal, having never scored a goal.
