Argentina dominate despite narrow winning margin in 3-2 friendly victory over Sweden (video)

Wednesday brought a round of international friendlies around the world, and among them was Argentina’s visit to Stockholm, where they took on Sweden in a match the Argentine press were hyping as the chance to get ‘revenge’ for the result which put Argentina out of the 2002 World Cup at the group stage. This one was less heartbreaking, and not just because it was meaningless; Gonzalo Higuaín forced an own goal from Mikael Lustig just two minutes in, and Argentina were dominant, eventually running out 3-2 winners. Higuaín ended with one of his own, Sergio Agüero got the other one, and Sweden’s came from Jonas Olsson, and a last-touch-of-the-game stunner from Rasmus Elm, who smashed a 30+ yard free kick into the top corner.
