Germans put four past Argentina

Germany's triumphant World Cup campaign continued on Saturday with an astounding 4-0 victory over Argentina. Germany now face Spain or Paraguay in the semi-final.

Germany steamrollered Argentina to reach the World Cup semi-finals with goals from Thomas Müller, a brace from Miroslav Klose, winning his 100th cap, and defender Arne Friedrich seeing off Diego Maradona's men.

Three-times Germany now face either Spain or Paraguay in the last four with Uruguay meeting Holland in the other semi-final.

Müller, who picked up an unfortunate booking to rule him out of the semi, nodded in a Bastian Schweinsteiger free-kick after just three minutes.

"It's difficult to know what to say when you sweep Argentina aside 4-0," said an overwhelmed Müller. "We did it as a team and I can't pick out any individuals. We all pulled together for this and it's just great."

Captain Philipp Lahm was equally incredulous: "No way – They are a top team. It's unbelievable that we beat them 4-0," he told German state broadcaster ZDF.
