South American giants Argentina will take on Switzerland on Tuesday 1st July 2014 while both teams looking forward for a place in the last eight of the World Cup 2014. Lionel Andres Messi’s team is one of the red hot favorites of this world cup. The Barcelona star is about to lead his country to a third World Cup title win. This Striker has scored 4 goals at his peak form. Argentina reached in the knock-out round after winning all 3 group games. They are the unbeaten winner of Group F which also contends Nigeria, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iran. For finishing second in Group E Switzerland have to face-off Argentina and Lionel Messi as reward. The biggest concern for the Swiss team particularly for Defender Fabian Schar will be keeping the Argentina’s main weapon Lionel Messi quiet. According to the FIFA Rankings it may seem a one-sided affair but Switzerland’s own Messi-equivalent Xherdan Shaqiri will be real hope for the Swiss. We know that Argentina’s defense is by far their obvious weakness. So Switzerland team should focus on this to reach the quarter-finals.
