Argentina beats Netherlands to qualify in the semi-final

Lionel Messi's side advanced to the World Cup semi-finals after an exciting World Cup quarter-final against the Dutch.

Nahuel Molina had put Argentina ahead with a barely believable assist by their talismanic No.10.

 Lionel Messi scored a second-half penalty to give them control after a foul by Denzel Dumfries on Marcos Acuna. 

However, Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal produced a spectacular comeback from his players in the last 10 minutes.

Wout Weghorst scored twice off the bench to send the game into extra-time.

Emiliano Martinez stopped both Virgil van Dijk and Steven Berghuis' penalty kicks.

Argentina converted all four of their penalties to advance to the semi-finals, where they will meet Croatia.
