Football Maestro, Lionel Messi has led Argentina to a famous victory against Netherlands, defeating them in a penalty shootout.
Argentina was leading 2-1 after a goal and assist from Messi and were on a verge of winning in fulltime until Netherlands equalized in the dying minutes of the game.
The fulltime draw made football fans ponder if Argentina would tow the same path as their South American counterparts Brazil, who stumbled in a penalty shootout against Croatia earlier today.
But an impressive performance from the Argentine Goalkeeper kept and led them to a sweet victory.
Lionel Messi is two games closer to the golden price but they must defeat Croatia before they are eligible to play in the finals.
Will Messi finally lift the first world cup in his career after winning almost all the trophies in football including Balon D’Ors and other personal awards? Only time shall tell.
