Mexico, Argentina through - what goals?

Mexico crushed Paraguay 6-o last night, whilst Argentina did a similar number on Peru. Whilst some of the football being played is utterly outstanding, four incredibly one-sided Quarter-finals has raised questions about a gulf in class between the top teams and also-rans in South America. The point is hammered home when you consider that neither Brazil nor Argentina are fielding their strongest line-ups.

Meanwhile somewhere in Asia escaped Oceania convicts Australia could only draw with Oman (ha!).

And they had to "salvage" a draw with Oman (via Cahill... who would look good in a gunner shirt if you ask me). I think even India have beaten Oman in the past.
