Argentina played against the weakest rival in the Copa América. And he beat him with authority. It was 4-1 with a Messi show, which reached the record of 148 games in the National Team and celebrated it with a superlative performance. A double, an assist and participation in Lautaro’s goal was the repertoire of Leo, who is also the only player who has played every minute since the Copa América began.
Next, the detail of the performance of the Scaloni team that did not have low points, perhaps helped by the weakness of a rival that was already known to be eliminated.
