The game began in stop-start fashion, with several fouls committed by the Swiss as they looked to upset Argentina's flow.
It wasn't until the 27th minute when the first real chance came and it fell to Switzerland against the run of play.
Soon after, Ezequiel Garay flicked a corner wide down the other end before Switzerland had a golden opportunity to go in front.
Shaqiri played in Josip Drmic and the striker beat Romero to the ball before feebly chipping it into the goalkeeper's arms.
