Rio de Janeiro: Argentina defender Ezequiel Garay said that the performance of their defence against the Netherlands in the World Cup semi-final has "silenced" all those who were skeptical about them.

"There was a lot of criticism of the defence. The team silenced all critics and played an impeccable match," Garay said, following his side's 4-2 win in a penalty shootout, reports Efe.

"We knew we had a very difficult time. The Netherlands is a difficult choice but the team did everything to neutralise it," said the defender, who has just left Benfica to sign for Russia's Zenit.
