Argentina 1-0 Switzerland (AET): Switzerland concentrate on stopping Messi

“In a very enjoyable World Cup second round, this was surely the least exciting game. Everything went through Leo Messi, and he eventually assisted the winning goal. Alejandro Sabella was without Sergio Aguero, so brought Ezequiel Lavezzi into the side – he started on the right, and Argentina were pretty much a 4-4-1-1 / 4-2-3-1 system. Ottmar Hitzfeld kept an unchanged side for his last game as a manager before retirement. This was a very poor game, with essentially only one major question – could Switzerland successfully shut down Messi, or would he come up with a moment of magic to win the game?” Zonal Marking
