The World Cup is taking a break in South Africa today. Each of the last eight teams is getting ready for its next challenge. Germany is preparing for a much-anticipated rematch with Argentina in the quarterfinals. Argentina leads the tournament in goals scored, and German coach Joachim Loew admits it's hard to find a weak spot on Diego Maradona's team.

Germany manager Joachim Loew correctly pinpointed the weaknesses in England's tactics as his young players swept past their old rivals in the second round, and sent Fabio Capello's side to a 4-1 defeat. So what are the shortcomings in the Argentinian Armour?

Joachim Loew, German coaach said, " Obviously Argentina is one of my top favourites to win the World Cup. They have won and comfortably won four matches. They have a very strong defence with lots of experience and an outstanding offensive department - not just Messi, but a string of other players who are also able to score a goal."
