Argentina barely beat a strong Switzerland 1-0 to advance to the quarter finals. The game was 0-0 after 90 minutes and the game went to extra time. Messi received the ball in the 118th minute (red alert for Switzerland), dodged a tackle and then played the ball to Angel Di Maria who then one timed it into the back of the net! Goooooooal! Switzerland almost tied the game with a header that bounced off the post, but were unable to get an equalizer and lost the game. Argentina will now advance to the quarter finals to face the winner of the Belgium vs. USA game.
