This could be Messi's year finally...

You can't help but wonder...is this it? Is this the year that Messi win the most coveted tournament, the World Cup?

Messi had a quiet game but was involved in the last gasp goal for Argentina


Argentina vs Switzerland....on paper, it look clear cut that Argentina could win this. But the game was extraordinary...Switzerland was strong defensively. They were great at the counter attack. They were hardworking, and they made Argentina looked ordinary. Even with Messi, Argentina find it difficult to breakthrough the Switzerland's defense. In fact, if not for some horrible miss by Switzerland in the first half, the game would have well be over by 90 minutes. But just as it has been so often this World Cup, luck is with Argentina. 

Another last gasp goal by Argentina

Lionel Messi had a quiet game, and that's largely due to the effectiveness of the game plan by the Swiss side. But once again, he was involved in the goal that helped Argentina win the game....A penalty shootout seemed inevitable, but Di Maria finally beat Benaglio with two minutes left. Palacio won the ball on the halfway line and laid the ball to Messi, who squared for Di Maria and he curled his shot into the net...and that's it...1-0 for Argentina. It looked like Argentina scrape past each games so far, but each time there is a Messi. It makes me wonder if this could be Messi's year....
