A virtual spectator all game long as he did not have anything to save.
Made a great hacked clearance against Jones, but was otherwise untroubled.
Did his job at the back, but had generally little to do.
Like the rest of the defence, he had a really quiet game.
Surprisingly, it was his offensive abilities that came to the fore, as he stabbed in a routine second goal and played a searching ball to initiate the third goal.
Showed great pace to chase down Jones and hack clear a long ball that would have put him clear.

Bossed matters in the attacking third, linking well with the rest and delivering some choice crosses.
Mopped up loose ends in the middle and patrolled in front of the defence well.
Involved and interested from the first whistle, he worked hard to start and finish moves. One stunning free kick cracked off the post and set up Mascherano's goal by proxy, but he had many other great moments.
Like the rest of the frontline, he got his fair share of attacking space, and he managed to fashion a few chances for his colleagues - including a lung busting run and cutback for Rodriguez to score.
His speed in the first half gave Argentina a real outlet to get in behind the defence.
His handling an aerial presence was secure, but he could have probably diverted the initial save for Palacio's goal further away from his own net.
He was caught a little too high up the field on more than one occasion.
One clearance nearly inadvertently went into his own net, but he thankfully struck the bar.
Responsible for a few meaty challenges, not least the one which felled Messi in the buildup to Argentina's second.
Ran his socks off all game, and though his marking was not always the best, he made up for it with relentless closing down.
His positioning was at times suspect, leaving too much space in behind for runners to exploit.
Played one or two incisive balls forward, and a few more that were waved off for offside.
The man without a club gave a good account of himself today with a hard working display to close down space.
Never able to get much going out on the wing as he was often isolated.
A thankless task up front, as he was made to chase lost causes for the most part. He had a decent chance to run in on goal once, but Demichelis put an end to that.
Put in a hard shift in the middle, not often managing to contribute offensively, and left behind on a few plays.
