Argentina v Japan Friendly

Now don't read into this too much. Japan wanted Messi to show up after he snubbed them during a Barcelona trip to Asia where Barca was admittedly just screwing around and "didn't want to be there". In the Argentina contract, Messi was to appear for at least half the match or Argentina would forfeit nearly $1mil.

That said, this was a nearly full WC squad for Argentina. They had Sergio Batista in charge on an interim basis (and I think it's safe to say he won't be the permanent replacement) while Japan was led by former AC Milan coach Zaccheroni.

Japan wins 1-0 behind a rebound goal by Okazaki.
