How are the mighty fallen

Argentina, from furnishing the best football of the World Cup so far, reduced to bad losers. Tense 1-1 draw with Germany settled by a penalty shoot-out, during which they allegedly swore at the German penalty-takers to try to put them off. When that failed, cue a mass brawl.

Terrible example of gamesmanship in a tournament in which it's been far too high up the agenda.
