Germany versus Argentina: 10 World Cup facts
Jens Lehmann: Penalty hero
In more recent times, Germany hosted Argentina at the 2006 World Cup, with Jens Lehmann taking the acclaim for a match-winning performance, as the game went to penalties. Lehmann had done his planning, the keeper had notes to look at in the break, while he had Oliver Kahn, the German legend, for encouragement on the bench. The notes were later auctioned for one million euros.
