Lionel Messi scores goal, Argentina tops Canada to reach Copa America final (VIDEO)

Lionel Messi was perfectly positioned, using a delicate touch with his legendary left boot to score his first goal in this summer’s Copa America tournament.

With this goal, Messi and Argentina now have a chance to win the Copa America again.

Messi’s goal came early in the second half, following a first-half goal by Julián Álvarez. Argentina triumphed over Canada with a 2-0 victory in their Copa America semifinal at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Tuesday night.

“It’s crazy what this group did, what the Argentine national team has been doing,” Messi said after the game.

“After this, much more importance will be given to all the finals that I and all of the old group had to play in.”

Argentina will compete in the Copa America final on Sunday in Miami, awaiting the outcome of Wednesday’s semifinal between Colombia and Uruguay. The team is aiming to further solidify its soccer legacy.

As the defending World Cup champions, Argentina is pursuing its second consecutive Copa America title, which would mark their fourth major international championship in three years, including the 2022 Finalissima victory over 2021 Euro champion Italy.
