Rojo's 86th minute strike puts Argentina through to knockout round

Argentina are through to the knockout round of the World Cup, thanks to an 86th-minute goal by Manchester United defender Marcus Rojo.

Rojo latched on a cross from Gabriel Mercado to slot home to an eruption of celebration for Argentina's fans.
