Carlos Tevez and Argentina are effectively through to the next phase of the World Cup after a resounding 4-1 victory over South Korea in Johannesburg.

Fellow striker Miguel Higuain's hat-trick guaranteed a second successive win following an opening Group B 1-0 success against Nigeria on Saturday for Diego Maradona's team.

Hard-working Tevez was taken off by coach Maradona after 74 minutes for a well-earned rest with Argentina all but certain to be heading for a place in the round of 16 later this month.

Argentina's second goal by Higuain came from a free kick after City favourite Tevez had been brought down.

Gareth Barry makes a welcome return to action in the England midfield tomorrow against Algeria in Cape Town as Fabio Capello's men aim for their crucial first Group C victory.

Joe Hart is still in the frame for a call-up as manager Capello wrestles with his goalkeeping dilemma following the Robert Green error that gave the USA their equaliser in the opener.

New Blues defender Jerome Boateng will hope for a taste of action as Germany, 4-0 winners against Australia, meet Serbia in Group D in Port Elizabeth.
