Di Maria is extra special
ANGEL DI MARIA claims Argentina had to fight for their lives to secure a place in the quarter-finals of the World Cup.
The Real Madrid striker scored deep into extra time to give Argentina a 1-0 win over Switzerland yesterday.
With a penalty shootout looming, Lionel Messi made a surging run toward the Swiss area in the 118th minute and laid the ball off to Di Maria on the right and the winger struck a left-foot shot past diving goalkeeper Diego Benaglio.
"We know that this could happen to us, but we gave our souls out there on the pitch, we fought with our lives for each ball and we ended up as the winners," Di Maria said.
