(Football) Romania muzzle Argentina
(03-06 11:41)

Romania held Lionel Messi's Argentina to a 0-0 draw in a friendly yesterday in Bucharest, Romania as the South Americans continued their preparations for the World Cup.
Argentina demonstrated their superior technical skills and kept up the pressure throughout a game watched by 47,000 people on a wet evening at the National Arena.
However, Romania proved tenacious in defense and was clearly determined not to lose against one of the favorites for the World Cup in Brazil.
Argentina's best chance came in the 84th minute when Messi intercepted a ball in the box and passed to Angel Di Maria, whose shot was saved by goalkeeper Ciprian Tartarusanu.—AP
