  • Shaqiri drives the ball into the wall. It's all over, and Argentina are through to the last eight thanks to Di Maria's late, late goal.

    120+5
  • Long delay before this free-kick. Will be the last kick of the match.

    120+4
  • Late drama. Shaqiri wins a free-kick right on the edge of the Argentina penalty box. Dead central.

    120+3
  • One last chance for Switzerland. Free-kick on the right. Benaglio up again. Benaglio gets on the ball but can't get a shot away. Di Maria goes for the open goal from 60 yards but can't find the target.

    120+3
  • What. A. Miss! Corner is met by Benaglio and spins away to the right. Ball played back into the six-yard box and met by Dzemaili, whose first effort hits the base of the post before the ball bounces back off his foot and wide of the target.

    120+2
  • Corner for Switzerland. Keeper Benaglio up.

    120+1
  • There are three added minutes for Switzerland to salvage something.

    120
  • The game looked destined for penalties, but Messi produced one last injection of pace to finally break Switzerland open. Really good finish from Di Maria too.

    119
  • GOAL - DI MARIA! Messi tees up Di Maria - probably the worst player on the pitch today - and he steers a shot beyond Benaglio into the far corner to win the match. Great finish to end a dire performance.

    118
  • The game has slowed to a walking pace. Like watching a very long slow-motion replay. An actual slow-motion replay would be going backwards here.

    117
  • Rodriquez crosses from the left but barely has enough energy to get the ball through to Romero.

    115
  • Fernandes heads a cross clear before it reaches Higuain. Messi hobbling.

    114
  • Mehmedi makes way for Dzemaili as Switzerland make their final change.

    113
  • The corner is headed clear to Di Maria, who takes a lazy swing at it and sends a shot sailing into the stands.

    112
  • Di Maria cuts in from the right and shoots left-footed, but Djourou gets his head in the way and sends the ball spinning wide for a corner.

    112
  • Messi dances into the Switzerland penalty box, but his cross is calmly cleared by Schar.

    111
  • It's two weary sides out there now. Switzerland for sure would take a penalty shootout now.

    111
  • The corner is cleared, but Zabaleta dispossesses a timid Seferovic to halt any Switzerland counter-attack.

    109
  • Di Maria has been the game's biggest disappointment but almost redeems himself with a stinging shot from 25 yards that Benaglio tips over the bar.

    109
  • Argentina basically playing 4-2-4 now with Di Maria and Messi right up with Palacio and Higuain.
