Angel Di Maria believes Argentina deserved to beat Switzerland
Midfielder Angel Di Maria believes Argentina deserved to beat Switzerland in their Round of 16 match.
Alejandro Sabella’s side needed a late extra time strike from the Real Madrid winger to seal the win, but Di Maria is sure that Argentina earned their victory.
“We gave everything out there,” he said, as reported by Football Italia.
“We left our heart and soul on the pitch. We were always in the game and we never gave up for a minute.
“I think because of that we deserved to win. I thought we had a lot of chances and we just made one mistake, which forced our goalkeeper into a save.
“We leave as victors because we did well. Thank God for this win, now we have four days to recover for the quarter-final.
“I dedicate the goal to my wife and daughter, who are here supporting me.”
