Argentina vs Switzerland in Sao Paulo.
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.
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.
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.
