Rodriguez scored a goal in the first half of extra time Saturday in the Argentina vs Mexico Round of 16 World Cup soccer match at Central Stadium in Leipzig, Germany. Argentina slips by Mexico By STEPHEN WADE ASSOCIATED PRESS LEIPZIG, Germany — A blast of brilliance by Maxi Rodriguez separated Argentina from Mexico in a World Cup classic Saturday night. Argentina moved into the quarterfinals with a 2-1 victory on Rodriguez's goal in the 98th minute of the first extra-time game in the tournament. Rodriguez chested a long, arcing pass from captain Juan Sorin at the right corner of the penalty area and, in almost the same motion, wheeled and volleyed a soaring left-footed shot to the far portion of the net over flailing goalkeeper Oswaldo Sanchez. "I had not decided to shoot it, but the ball fell right in front of me," Rodriguez said. "It's one of those shots that can go into the stands or in the goal." The Argentines weren't too exhausted to celebrate, mobbing Rodriguez after his third goal of the tournament — and biggest of his life. Still, Argentina had to stave off Mexico for another 22 minutes — there is no sudden death in this World Cup. At the end, several Mexican players were crying. Mario Mendez kicked the turf at the center of the field, walking glumly fpruthe sideline.^ •,»«. Teammate Francisco Fonseca sat nearby, staring up into the stands. Behind him in the far corner, bare-chested Argentina players twirled their shirts in the air, some dropping to their knees to salute their fans — and each other. "Truly, it's incredible, a beautiful goal," Rodriguez said. Next up for Argentina is a match with Germany in Berlin on Friday night. Argentina and Germany met in the 1986 and 1990 finals, splitting titles. "We saw them a little," Rodriguez said of Germany's 2-0 win over Sweden earlier Saturday, "but I think Argentina can beat anybody." Two-time champion Argentina lost in the 1998 quarterfinals and was knocked out in the first round four years ago. This time, Argentina topped its group before barely getting past a Mexican team that struggled to finish second in its opening-round group, then found its rhythm against the heavy favorite. Until Rodriguez's stunning shot, it was an al- most dead-even game of attrition. Both teams scored early, with Rafael Marquez putting Mexico ahead in the sixth minute and Hernan Crespo equalizing in the 10th. Then they nearly wore each other out. Mexico made the second round for the fourth straight time, but has lost each time. "The winner is the one who scores the goal," Marquez said, blaming Swiss referee Massimo Busacca for some of his team's problems. "Mexico was pushing for a goal, but that great shot eliminated us. "There is nothing to feel bad about. Things are as they are, but I'm sad we are out." The game was only the second matchup in the World Cup for the two Latin American powers, and much closer than Argentina's 6-3 win when they last met in the inaugural tournament 76 years ago Marquez's goal put Argentina behind for the first time in the tournament. Pavel Pardo sent in a free kick from the right side, which Mario Mendez headed across the goalmouth to a sliding Marquez. He knocked the ball over diving keeper Roberto Abbondanzieri. Argentina tied it four minutes later. Juan Roman Riquelme curled in a corner from the right .•side, which Jarejl Borgetti appeared to.head into his own goal as he lunged to beat Crespo to the ball. However, the goal was awarded to Crespo. Germany 2, Sweden 0 MUNICH, Germany — Lukas Podolski scored two early goals to lead Germany past Sweden and into the World Cup quarterfinals. Podolski scored in the fourth and 12th minutes, with his forward partner Miroslav Klose playing a big role in both. Podolski now has three goals in the tournament. Defender Teddy Lucic was sent off in the 35th for two yellow cards, and striker Henrik Larsson wasted a penalty kick in the 53rd to make matters worse for an overmatched Swedish team. Much maligned before the World Cup after a string of lackluster warmup matches, many Germans were skeptical of the team's chances. But the doubters have become believers and carried on by euphoric home crowds, Germany looks like a contender after winning its first four games. Sweeney to start rehab assignment in Wichita KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Five-time All-Star Mike Sweeney of the Kansas City Royals, out since May 2 with a bulging disc, said he plans to start a rehab assignment next week at Double-A Wichita. The first baseman has been plagued with back problems for several years. His absence in the lineup has been sorely felt as the Royals got off to the worst record this year in the major leagues. "I'm going to leave Monday morning and play some games in Wichita and make my way back to Kansas City soon as possible," Sweeney said Saturday. "I'll be playing Monday night in Wichita." At Wichita, he'll be playing with many of the top prospects in the Royals organization, players such as infielder Alex Gordon and outfielder Billy Butler who are being counted on to spearhead a long-awaited youth movement for the major league club. "It will be fun playing with the young guys," Sweeney said. "Hopefully, I can be an example for those guys when I go down there and work hard, so when they come up here they'll know what to expect." He's hoping to be activated by Kansas City around July 2. "I'm going to get 20-to-25 at-bats in and then come back. Our team has been playing great lately and I'd love to help pitch in," he said. "I just want to go out and play, whether it is here in Kansas City, which I know I'm not ready for yet, I just want to go out and play some baseball games. I'm pumped to say the least. I feel great." Closer Mike MacDougal is also on a rehab assignment at Wichita. The right-hander has been out all season with a strain in his right shoulder. Blues take American Erik Johnson with No, 1 pick; Penguins go with younger Staal By KEVIN WOODLEY ASSOCIATED PRESS VANCOUVER, British Columbia — The St. Louis Blues selected defenseman Erik Johnson with the first pick in the NHL draft Saturday, making him the fifth American to be taken No. 1 overall. The Bloomington, Minnesota native joins Brian Lawton (1983), Mike Modano (1988), Bryan Berard (1995) and Rick Dipietro (2000) as the only Americans taken with the first pick. Shortly after NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman was booed loudly by the Vancouver crowd during opening remarks, St. Louis did exactly what everyone expected and announced Johnson s name. Blessed with great skating ability, a big Johnson body, and soft hands, Johnson is known for making both big hits and big plays offensively The 6-foot-4,222-pound defenseman spent last season with the U.S. National Team Development Program. He recorded 11 goals and 22 points in just 38 games with the under-18 team. He became the top-ranked prospect with a strong World Junior Championships in Vancouver in January Johnson has said he patterns his play after Col- orado star Rob Blake, but is compared more often to Edmonton's Chris Pronger, who won a Hart and Norris Trophy in St. Louis. Johnson is scheduled to attend the University of Minnesota next season, but could instead be playing in St. Louis, where the Blues are still looking to replace Pronger after trading the all-star to Edmonton following the 2004-05 NHL lockout. The Pittsburgh Penguins used the second pick to select Jordan Staal, the 17-year-old brother of Carolina Hurricanes star forward Brie Staal. Jordan is the third of what could be four Staals drafted into the NHL—older brother Marc, 19, was the 12th pick in 2005 and is already signed with the New York Rangers arid younger brother Jared, 15, is being touted as the best of the bunch.' Jordan, a 6-foot-4,209-pound center who is widely compared to big brother Eric, had 28 goals and 68 points for Peterborough in the Ontario Hockey League last season. Chicago selected center Jonathan Toews third. The 6-foot-l, 195-pound Canadian center scored 21 goals and added 17 assists in 41 games at the University of North Dakota last season. The Washington Capitals had their rookie of the year Alexander Ovechkin take the stage to announce the fourth pick, and used it to select Swedish center Nicklas Backstrom. Backstrom spent last season playing professionally in the Swedish Elite League, where he was rookie of the year after scoring 10 goals and 16 assists as an 18- year-old. Boston selected Phil Kessel with the fifth pick. The Madison, Wisconsin native was considered the consensus No. 1 pick heading into last season. Kessel slipped despite scoring 18 goals and 51 points as a freshman at the University of Minnesota last season. A dynamic scorer, he only had one goal — to go with 11 assists — in seven games at the World Junior Championships, a big drop off from the nine goals and 16 points he managed at the event the year before. Columbus selected Quebec-born center Derick Brassard sixth. Brassard, who was born a week too late to be eligible for the 2005 draft, scored 44 goals and 116 points in Major Junior Hockey League last season. New head coach Ted Nolan announced the New York Islanders seventh selection of Minnesota-born right wing Kyle Okposo. The 18-year-old Okposo had 58 points in Just 50 games and was named rookie of the year in the United States Hockey League. Phoenix coach Wayne Gretzky received a raucous welcome as he stepped up to announce the Coyotes t had selected Peter Mueller eighth, making Minnesota the home state for three of the first eight picks in the draft. Demitra was the Kings third-leading scorer with 25 goals and 62 points in just 58 games, and has 241 goals and 581 points in 611 career NHL games with St. Louis and Los Angeles. The only other big trade involving draft picks came before the second selection was announced, as Calgary acquired forward Alex Tanguay from Colorado in exchange for defenseman Jordan Leopold, a second- round pick — 59th overall— and a conditional second- round pick in next year s draft. The 26-year-old Tanguay was Colorado's second leading scorer with 29 goals and 78 points last season but required a $3.23 million qualifying offer from the' Avalanche by July 1 to retain his rights. On Friday the Florida Panthers acquired forward Todd Bertuzzi in exchange for goaltender Roberto Luongo as part of a five-player trade with the Vancouver Canucks. The Canucks also sent promising young goaltender Alex Auld and defenseman Bryan Allen to the Panthers. Bertuzzi, who was suspended for the end of the 2003.04 season and playoffs after his on-ice attack on Colorado's Steve Moore, had 25 goals and 71 points last season, In 2002-2003, the forward scored 46 goals.
