World Cup 2010, Argentina Vs. Mexico: Carlos Salcido, Andres Guardado Threaten Early

A speculative shot from right back Carlos Salcido was barely pushed against the cross bar in the eighth minute, with Andres Guardado missing by two feet to the left of goal one minute later, the two shots the first times either Mexico or Argentina have threatened goal.

Carlos Salcido's shot from near 40 yard out started innocently but nearly floated over Sergio Romero's head an into goal, with a late reaction from the goalkeeper forcing him to push it against the bar.

One minute later, an attack down the right was played back to midfielder Andres Guardado' whose left footed strike from the right of goal was put just wide, outside the far post.

Mexico and Argentina remain scoreless after 13 minutes.
