Argentina have secured their spot in the semi finals after a tough and close match with the Netherlands in Shanghai.

The Argentinians had a good start with Messi opening the score after 14 minutes.

But the Dutch, who had hardly been given a chance in advance of this game, came back as Bakkal scored in the rebound after a shot from Evander Sno.

The Netherlands were in fact the better side in the second half and had an enormous chance to decide the match just before time, but Royston Drenthe send a shot over the bar in a one-on-one with the keeper.

Just before the end of the first half in extra time, it was Angel Di Maria to send a diagonal shot past keeper Vermeer for 2-1.

Argentina will now meet with arch rivals Brazil in the semi finals on Tuesday. Whoever wins that match, faces Belgium or Nigeria in the final.
