Argentina fans celebrate with a St George 'coffin'
Thousands of fans filled the streets of Buenos Aires to celebrate Argentina's World Cup victory over England.
Huge crowds filled the Plaza de la Republica immediately after the final whistle.
The matched was broadcast on a giant TV screen in the centre of Buenos Aires. Otherwise the capital's streets were deserted as football fever gripped the country.
Fireworks lit up the sky as the streets filled within seconds of David Batty's missed penalty.
But the celebrations were mixed with tragedy and violence.
Police say that 21 people were wounded after groups of youths attacked police and a television crew in Buenos Aires.
And three fans were killed in a car accident when their van crashed north of the city.
