Remember kids, studying pays off

The 90 minutes and extra-time where largely uneventful, apart from one brilliant tackle from Javier Mascherano, but the penalty shoot-out was much more dramatic. Argentina eventually beat Holland 4-2 in the spot-kicks, with goalkeeper Sergio Romero the hero for the Abliceleste saving from Ron Vlaar and Wesley Sneijder.

Argentinian TV have now released footage of Romero reading notes on every Dutch penalty taker before their kick. Where did he keep this vital information? Shoved down his shorts of course. Take a look...

JOE is always thoroughly prepared for every situation on the pitch but after seeing this we will be keeping a few notes down our jocks just in case.
