Argentina started on a bright note with France chasing shadows initially. The Argentines came close on multiple occasions only for the French defence to collapse eventually.

It was De Maria to pull strings together, meting justice to his title of the big match player as he sped past his markers while Dembele nudged him from the back as he took a sharp tumble.

The referee wasted no time in pointing to the dreaded spot and Lionel Messi stepped up in time to hammer home and continue his impressive run in the knock-outs as he became the only player to register to score in all knock out games of the FIFA World Cup.

In fact, he set up Angel di Maria with a classic cross for the second goal, making himself the reigner in supreme for the Argentine stalwarts. Twitter was ablaze in a second as Messi’s strike pegged back into the net penning history for Argentina.
