Not thinking about personal success. My goal is to win the title – I have said this several times throughout the event. Argentina captain Lionel Messi. And to implement this, the Argentine magician has come on the field in every match with the bet of giving his best.
In the end, he succeeded. Argentina won the Copa America on Sunday morning after 26 years, beating hosts Brazil 1-0 at the historic Maracana Stadium. Messi did not get a goal-assist in the final. However, desperate to win the title was seen throughout the match.
However, Messi looked as energetic and agile in the first half as he did in the second half. He could not even use the golden opportunity to score in the 6th minute of the match. This is mainly due to a hamstring injury. Messi has played in the last two matches of the Copper with injury.
Messi’s ankle was hit hard in the 48th minute of the semi-final match against Colombia. Immediately blood started dripping from that ankle.
After the initial treatment, Messi played the rest of the match with a bleeding leg and then a tiebreaker. Argentina won that match and advanced to the final.
And today in the final, Brazil lost the elusive title taste. After winning the final, Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni told the news about Messi’s injury.
