A late goal in extra time by Angel di Maria pushed Argentina past Switzerland in the round of 16, and with the victory, Argentina became one of the final eight teams remaining in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Di Maria's go-ahead goal in the 118th minute set off an extremely loud celebration back in Buenos Aires.

Lionel Messi's strong pass to the Real Madrid man helped give Argentina a 1-0 lead with only a few minutes to play:

Argentina fans had waited all match for a goal. When Di Maria found the back of the net near the end of extra time, the fans were finally able to let out some screams of joy.
