Germany vs Argentina: Head-to-head

These two footballing powerhouses have met five times since the beginning of 2010 with Argentina winning all three of their friendlies but the Germans claiming glory when it’s really counted.

Germany won their World Cup quarter-final clash in 2010 4-0 in Cape Town with Miroslav Klose bagging a brace.
