The luck of the Albiceleste

MEXICO 1 - Salcido 105

Argentina (Riquelme, Maxi, Aimar, Galletti, Sorin, Cambiasso)

Saviola (90) and Mexico´s Marquez (90) were dismissed

Argentina refused to die as extra-time between two sides reduced to ten men failed to come up with a winner.
A scrambled poke from Figeroa - who had hitherto conspicuously mislaid his scoring touch - equalised Salcido`s dogged run and deflected shot that took Mexico to the brink of a surprise final appearance against Brazil in Frankfurt on Wednesday.
