Argentina works a short corner as Mexico falls asleep at the back.

Fernandez picks the ball up on the edge of the box, produces a lovely step-over throwing a couple of defenders of his scent, and then curls a delicious shot into the far right corner.

The strained expressions on Argentina's bench from earlier have been replaced by smiles.

At this rate, Mexico will be hoping for a huge favor from Poland next Wednesday evening.
