The 26-year-old had failed to convert in his last six appearances for Alejandro Sabella's side, his worst-ever streak at international level, but fired home the all-important goal to send Argentina to the World Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1990.
"I was calm and relaxed," he said after picking up his Man of the Match award. "I knew the goal would come and I was just doing my best for the team."
And he added: "The goal finally came in an important match and that's why I'm so emotional. It has been a long time since Argentina were in the semi-finals, so we have to enjoy it.
"We'll keep taking things step by step."
