When asked midway through the 2006 World Cup for his team of the tournament so far, Alan Hanson very boldly picked the entirety of the Argentina side. He really thought they'd been that good.

Of course, it didn't quite end in glory for the Argentines that year, did it? But Hansen was on the money with just how good they'd been. In the group stage, they managed to thrash Serbia and Montenegro 6-0, scoring one of the goals of the tournament. 

It was death by a thousand cuts. Well, 24, at least. The Albiceleste ran rings around their opposition, racking up two dozen whole passes before sliding the ball in the net for one of the goals. And we thought it was Brazil who were meant to play the beautiful football.

Pretty much everyone in the side touched the ball en route to that particular strike. But who was on the pitch that day for a famous rout?
