Switzerland's German coach Ottmar Hitzfeld says Argentina captain Lionel Messi can "change a game in a second" but added that his team was a tough opponent for 'La Albiceleste'.

Argentina beat Switzerland 1-0 with Angel di Maria scoring an extra-time goal from a Messi assist in a World Cup Round of 16 clash to proceed to the quarterfinals where they will take on Belgium, reports EFE.

"It was a tough game but we made life difficult for them. They managed to stay calm. Argentina has a good team. The team delivered a good performance, tactically mature and calm in critical situations," said Hitzfeld, also praising his goalkeeper Diego Benaglio, who made many crucial saves.

The German tactician added that Argentina is not only about Messi. They have other good players like Ezequiel Lavezzi, Javier Mascherano and di Maria.
