Argentina ended 28 years of wait to win Copa America Cup

Argentina defeated host Brazil in the final of the Copa America 2021 with the help of Angel Di Maria’s goal. The title match between Messi’s and Neymar’s team was played at the Maracana Stadium of Rio De Janeiro on Saturday. With this victory, the dream of Lionel Messi has been fulfilled as he had never been able to win any title of his country. 

Argentina has won the Copa America title since 1993 ending a 28-years drought. In the 22nd minute of the match, Maria scored for Argentina, which proved to be the first and last goal of the match. María put Argentina ahead by scoring with the help of Ederson Santana de Moraes. He became the first Argentine player since Cesar Delgado to score in the Copa America final in 2004.

In the 32nd minute, Lionel Messi ran past the Brazilian defense only to find the edge of the box. Meanwhile, Neymar tried to dodge the football, but could not produce the desired result. Maria’s goal separated Brazil and Argentina at halftime in the Copa America final. In the second half, Richardson gave Brazil some respite as he tossed the ball into the net, but the goal was turned down offside. Brazil struggled hard to find a target and even forced Argentina to turn on the defensive mode, but still could not find the net.

Lionel Messi may not have scored in the final of Copa America, but in the current tournament, Messi was in red hot form, scoring the joint-highest four goals in Copa America 2021. Messi was seven years old when Argentina last won the prestigious Copa America trophy. Maria’s strong goal in the final of the tournament brought great relief to either Messi or his fans.

Watch football scores of the Copa America title match, where Lionel Messi won the trophy at his sixth attempt, downing Neymar’s Brazil, to release the burden of international silverware.
