An extra-time strike from Ángel Di María ensured Argentina got the better of Switzerland and advanced to the last eight of the FIFA World Cup.

The Albiceleste only sparked into life with half-an-hour of normal time left, yet a breakthrough in Sao Paulo was not forthcoming. That was until 118 minutes were on the clock, when Di María produced a classy finish to stave off Switzerland and book his side a quarter-final date with either Belgium or the United States.
