Argentina matchwinner Angel di Maria insists they deserved their World Cup triumph over Switzerland.
After 118 minutes, Real Madrid winger Di Maria fired in an angled drive on Leo Messiâ€™s assist.
â€śWe gave everything out there,â€ť he told reporters after the game.
â€śWe left our heart and soul on the pitch. We were always in the game and we never gave up for a minute.
â€śI think because of that we deserved to win. I thought we had a lot of chances and we just made one mistake, which forced our goalkeeper into a save.
â€śWe leave as victors because we did well. Thank God for this win, now we have four days to recover for the quarter-final.
â€śI dedicate the goal to my wife and daughter, who are here supporting me.â€ť
