Milestones and Maradona's men

Congratulations to Shay Given, who kept a clean sheet against Montenegro on the occasion of his 100th cap for the Republic of Ireland (a milestone ex-Mackem Zinedine Kilbane also inexplicably marked).

Congratulations too to Spiderman, whose Argentina put a woeful qualifying campaign behind them to squeeze through to South Africa courtesy of a 1-0 win in Uruguay. Given that he's only just returned to full fitness, though, we really didn't want to read the following sentence: "Uruguay's Martin Caceres was sent off after a second yellow card for a clumsy foul on Newcastle's Jonas Gutierrez". Hopefully there won't have been any lasting damage, but history would advise us to be prepared for the worst...

Update: Thanks to Chris F for setting our minds at ease about potential injury to Spiderman - see the comments box.
