For nearly two hours of play, Argentina and Switzerland struggled to create realistic scoring chances. Lionel Messi, the best player on the planet, looked like a mere mortal and penalty kicks looked inevitable.

Then the magic happened. The diminuitive superstar created the game-winning goal, slicing through the Swiss defense and finding Angel Di Maria, who fired it home.

The Swiss then came this close to leveling things up a few minutes later.

That’s either really bad luck or proof the Pope is an Argentine. Maybe both.
