Argentina got a great win (3-0) over Brazil yesterday in the semifinal of the football tournament of the Beijing Olympic games, and will clash with Nigeria for the gold medal on Saturday.

The Argentinians were the better side throughout the entire game and saw Brazil off with second-half goals scored by Agüero(2) and Riquelme(pen.). Lionel Messi, who had another good performance in the semifinals, expressed his thoughts after the match:

We had a great game. I think we were always in control; we couldn’t score in the first half, but after the break we managed to convert our chances

We are happy now, but the tournament isn’t finished yet. We want the gold medal
