Argentina made a bold statement at the 2006 FIFA World Cup™ with a magnificent 6-0 group-stage win over Serbia and Montenegro in Gelsenkirchen.

The crowning moment was a glorious goal by Inter Milan's Esteban Cambiasso, the midfielder capping off a fine move that involved a remarkable 24 passes when he took Hernan Crespo's back-heel to fire home.

Argentina topped the group before being eliminated by host nation Germany on penalties in the quarter-finals.
