Messi shone and gave Argentina the victory by 3-1 against Switzerland
February 29, 2012
Lionel Messi had a magnificent role in the match that Argentina played against Switzerland, making the national team to win by 3-1.
Lio opened the scoring after 19 minutes of the first time, when the Sabella team did not have many ideas, by the enormous pressure of Switzerland and its stifling progress on the territory of Sergio Romero.
The combination was carried out with Aguero, who gave a perfect pass to “La Pulga” that ended up finishing with his left foot against the bow of Diego Benaglio to put the 1-0.
But in the beginning of the second half Argentina showed deficiencies in the defense and paid the price. Shaqiri matched with precise left-footed shot.
When the game seemed to stagnate on equality, the talent of Messi returned to make a difference. He faced from right to left and poked the ball over the goalkeeper which played the bar and ended in the net.
In the final time, Higuain suffered a breach in the area and the referee declared penalty. Messi kicked it to close this story 3 to 1.
