Soccer-Argentina and Switzerland level at 0-0 at halftime


SAO PAULO, July 1 (Reuters) - Argentina and Switzerland were

goalless at halftime after the Swiss managed to keep Lionel

Messi fairly quiet in an evenly-contested World Cup last-16 game

on Tuesday.

Both sides had chances with Switzerland's Josip Drmic put

clean through before the break, only to chip the ball into the

arms of keeper Sergio Romero, while Argentina striker Ezequiel

Lavezzi earlier had an effort saved by Diego Benaglio.
