Argentina defeats Brazil in the Copa America final 1-0
Argentina beat Brazil 1-0 in the final of the Copa America to win their maiden title after 1993. Lionel Messi’s long wait to win a title comes to an end. There was one goal being scored in the match by Angel
Di Maria of Argentina.
It was after 28 years they win their first title and also it was the superstar’s first major international trophy. The first goal of the match came in the 22nd minute of the game after Rodrigo de Paul made a long pass to Angel di Maria. As it turned out to be the only goal scored by both teams in the match and turned out to be the match-winning goal of the match for Argentina.
The 33-year-old veteran striker was aided by some sloppy defending from left-back Renan Lodi to take it to control and lob it past goalkeeper Ederson. It turned out to be the third goal Brazil conceded in the entire tournament. Flying Neymar tried very hard with dribbles and passes, but Selecao looked barely threatening to Emili the Argentina goalkeeper.
At last, Argentina finishes the drought by winning the Copa America final. It came after 16 years since Lionel Messi made his debut for the Argentina team.
