Argentina vs. Switzerland heads to extra time

In yet another World Cup knockout stage game, the goalkeepers have stolen the show. Switzerland and Argentina have not played a game that could be described as defensive or a tactical chess match at all, but they haven't been able to score, and they head into extra time tied up at 0-0.

Argentina keeper Sergio Romero's had a bit of work and is having an excellent game, but it's the man on the other side of the pitch, Diego Benaglio, that's really stealing the show. He's made some stellar saves, with his best coming on on a Gonzalo Higuain header in the first half, and he's made a couple of nice second half stops on Lionel Messi.

Switzerland only have one more substitution to make, while Argentina have two, which could provide the Albiceleste with a nice advantage over the next 30 minutes. They don't have Sergio Aguero anymore, but they have Maxi Rodriguez to add some attacking punch or Lucas Biglia for fresh legs in midfield.
