Angel di Maria Sends Argentina into Quarter-Final
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Argentina defeated Switzerland in the 2014 World Cup last 16 thanks to Angel di Maria's extra-time winner on Tuesday.
In the 118th minute, Lionel Messi drove forward past two players to the edge of the box, picking out Angel di Mari on the right side and the Real Madrid star coolly slotted the ball home into the far corner with his left foot.
Switzerland nearly grabbed an equalizer at the dying moments of the match, when Blerim Dzemaili's header cannoned off the foot of the post and he sent the rebound wide of the goal.
Argentina will next play either the United States or Belgium.
