Group C

Serbia & Montenegro vs Holland in Leipzig:
Serbia & Montenegro tried to push forward and take advantage of how the heat was starting to affect the Dutch but they just didn't get the final touch.

Argentina vs Serbia & Montenegro in Gelsenkirchen:
Serbia & Montenegro were totally demolished and demoralised as their World Cup hopes now rested on Ivory Coast beating Holland.

Côte d'Ivoire vs Serbia & Montenegro in München:
For a team touted as having a solid defence coming into the 2006 World Cup Finals they'll be dissapointed to have let in another three; especially as they were two goals up in twenty minutes.
