The quarterfinal match many soccer betting fans are focusing on is the Argentina-Mexico match. Argentina got two great goals from Sergio Aguero to defeat Poland 3-1 in second-round play. Aguero has five goals for Argentina at the FIFA U-20 World Cup. Argentina is the reigning world champion. They have won four of the last six titles. "I believe we had a great attitude, because we were always looking to score goals. We have quality players who are always looking to score and that was the difference," Argentina coach Hugo Tocalli said.
Mexico survived against Congo for World Cup betting fans, as Giovanni dos Santos scored the winning goal on a penalty kick in the 23rd minute as Mexico won 3-0. Giovanni has three goals in the tournament. "We will be playing a rival, and we'll play with the same intensity as in the other games," Mexican coach Jesus Ramirez said.
