of Argentina scored the only goal in the Group B World Cup between his country and Nigeria today, leading his national team to their first victory. The score was an awesome one in the 6th minute, when Heinze managed to connect with a diving header off a corner kick to score the game's lone goal.

Heinze attracted a lot of attention with his awesome goal, and Diego Maradona
, the team's coach, apparently also had the cameras on him almost as much because he spent the majority of the game ranting and raving on the sidelines. It's an intense game, folks!
Now Argentina has 3 points and is sitting at the top of Group B, along with South Korea -- they beat Greece earlier today 2-0. The games heat up in just a bit with the USA taking on England at 11:30PST. Don't miss it!
