Messi summed up Argentina's great evening: "We dominated the game and I think we could have decided it even earlier. We suffered towards the end, but Martinez saved us in the final minutes. We made it to the quarter-finals and we are certainly happy but also tired. I am very happy for this victory and another small step forward.
