Group F

Argentina vs Nigeria
With Roberto Ayala out of Argentina's first game through injury, the captain's armband went to Juan Sebastian Veron -- who was keen to impress after what some might call a disappointing season at Old Trafford.

Argentina vs England
A catastrophe for Argentina as they stumble to a David Beckham penalty and could go out of the tournament, if Sweden beat them as well.

Sweden vs Argentina
Argentina earned a draw against Sweden but it wasn't enough to keep them in the tournament.
