Angel Di Maria is the hero of the evening at the Argentine side. The Real Madrid player has released in Argentina in the second half of extra time. Di Maria, well served by Lionel Messi, put in the only goal of the match in the 118th minute of play.
Argentina suffered but just like Brazil, France and Germany, great players pick up calls in great games. Once again, Argentina can thank Messi decisive on goal of Di Maria.
