Match Preview

Argentina and Switzerland have only met once at a World Cup Finals, in the England 1966 group stage.

Argentina beat Switzerland (2:0) in Sheffield; then lost to eventual winners, England (0:1) in the quarter-final.

The Match

Who would have thought that this game would drag on without a goal almost one hundred and twenty minutes.

What a miserable night for fans of football.

Goalscorers 1:0
Thankfully Angel di Maria put us out of our misery in the 118th minute. It would have been a tragedy had Switzerland gone through on penalties.

Just when we thought Switzerland were out, substitute Blerim Dzema headed onto the post and made football fans around the world cringe.
