Lionel Messi has taken Argentina someplace it hasn’t been since Diego Maradona was in the team’s No. 10 shirt: The World Cup semifinals.

Argentina defeated Belgium 1-0 in the quarterfinals of the 2014 World Cup at Nacional in Brasilia on Saturday to reach semifinals for the first time since 1990. The lone goal of the match came in the eighth minute when Gonzalo Higuain turned a deflected pass toward goal with a stunning right-footed shot.
