Swiss hold Argentina 0-0 at half time
KINGSTON, Jamaica — Switzerland and Argentina are tied 0-0 at half-time in their round of 16 match Tuesday.
However the Swiss could rue two good chances to go ahead in a half where they kept Lionel Messi in check.
The first was a clear shot blocked by goal keeper Sergio Romero from a corner.
But the best chance of the half saw a Swiss forward, with a wide open goal, calmly chipping a through ball into the hands of Romero.
Earlier Argentina opened the half pressing but after some nine minutes the Swiss woke up, getting the first real chance on goal in the game.
