Argentinian men, German and American women flex their muscles 12 Aug. 2004



ATHENS, 11 August - Men's Football tournament favourites Argentina and Women's powerhouses Germany and the USA wasted no time stamping their authority on their respective groups on the Olympic tournament's opening day.


Hosts Greece, meanwhile, enjoyed mixed fortunes as the Men's team escaped with a draw and the Women were comprehensively beaten by the USA.


Argentina gave the young Serbia and Montenegro team a lesson in precision football, routing their opponents 6-0 to take a grip on Group C. The South Americans stormed to a 4-0 half time lead - Carlos TEVEZ (ARG) notching two goals in two minutes shortly before the break - before easing off in the second half to cruise to an ominous victory.


Earlier, Germany compiled an Olympic Games record score in crushing a surprisingly ineffective China 8-0 in their Group F match at Patras. Captain Birgit PRINZ (GER) was merciless in notching four goals as the Germans put themselves in the box seat to progress to the quarterfinals.


In Group G, the USA was similarly impressive, if less potent in front of goal, as the Mia HAMM-led side disposed of hosts Greece 3-0. HAMM (USA) was a constant danger up front, scoring the final goal in the 82nd minute to cap a smooth performance by the Americans.


Elsewhere in the Women's tournament, Japan squeaked past Sweden 1-0 thanks to an Eriko ARAKAWA (JPN) strike in the 24th minute following a mistake by Swedish goalkeeper Caroline JOENSSON.


A goal from teenage forward MARTA (BRA) proved the difference in Brazil's match against Australia, the 1-0 win ensuring Brazil kept abreast with USA in Group G.


In the Men's tournament, Greece came back from 0-2 down against a 10-man Korea to pinch a 2-2 draw with an 82nd minute penalty from Dimitrios PAPADOPOULOS (GRE) in front of a full house in Thessaloniki. The other Group A match saw Mexico and Mali share the points in a dour 0-0 draw which left the group evenly poised.


Tunisia and Australia also split the points in their 1-1 draw in Heraklio, the Tunisians laying seige to their opponent's goal for the final 20 minutes - but for no reward - after they had cancelled out an Australian goal scored on the stroke of half time.
