About M.E. myself and I

I have been an M.E. sufferer for a long time now, but sports replay gaming is an easy hobby for me to enjoy. Originally from Canvey Island, Essex, I was introduced to replay gaming a few years ago, leading to my first purchase: Cricket World. Most sports I share will be common, but there are some more obscure replays thrown in. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to say hello! - Chris

Final Score - WC2010 Group B, Argentina vs Nigeria

Saturday 12th June 2010 - Ellis Park Stadium, Johannesburg. Att: 55,686
Referee: Wolfgang Stark (Germany)

LINEUPS:
Argentina (442): Romero, Otamendi, Heinze, Demichelis, Burdisso, Mascherano, M Rodriguez, di Maria (Veron 66'), Higuain, Tevez (Aguero 80'), Messi
Nigeria (451): Enyeama, Odiah, Taiwo (Adeleye 58'), Yobo, Shittu, Etuhu, Haruna, Kaita (Kanu 58'), Ayegbeni, Uche, Obasi (Martins 80')

Argentina began their tournament with a dominating 3-0 victory over an outclassed Nigerian side that never looked like scoring. The skills of Messi, Tevez and Maxi Rodriguez turned the African defenders inside out on several occasions leading a 2-0 advantage at the break. A poor punch from keeper Enyeama on a Heinze cross allowed Lionel Messi to clean up with a neat volley, and Maxi Rodriguez doubled the lead when a corner kick ended on his foot and he rattled it home off the bar. It could have been worse with Higuin, di Marla and Heinze all misfiring.

Nigeria improved in the second half with more alert defending and a couple of good stops from Enyeama, but the blue and white tide eventually proved too much again when Nicolas Burdisso had a top-in after Veron's shot came back off the post.
