Pekerman: We accomplish our objective
font size    

Argentina coach Jose Pekerman said after his victory Saturday in Hamburg that his team accomplished the objective fixed before the game.

Argentina and Cote d'Ivoire presented on Saturday a spectacular game in the first encounter of the so-called "Group of Death". Argentina won the battle 2-1.

During an after-match press conference, Pekerman said Cote d'Ivoire was an important adversary and couldn't be considered as a debutant of the FIFA World Cup.

He explained his team concentrated a defensive system in the last ten minutes of game because Cote d'Ivoire has sent several forwards. "We should not take risk," he said.

"We accomplished our objective. It's a collective victory. Our defensive strategy has worked," he added.

Argentina will play a next game against Serbia and Montenegro on June 16.
