Lionel Messi's magic leads Argentina to the Copa America final In a thrilling semifinal match between Argentina and Canada, Lionel Messi once again proved why he is considered one of the greatest footballers of all time. The Argentinian star ended his scoring drought by netting a goal and assisting another to lead his team to a 2-0 victory over Canada, securing their spot in the Copa America final. After a goalless first half, it was Julian Alvarez who opened the scoring for Argentina in the 23rd minute. The young striker displayed his prowess by skillfully finishing off a well-executed play, orchestrated by teammate Rodrigo De Paul. Alvarez's goal set the stage for Messi to weave his magic in the second half. In the 51st minute, Messi showcased his brilliance by setting up Enzo Fernandez for a goal before scoring one himself. The goal not only doubled Argentina's lead but also marked a significant milestone for Messi, as he surpassed Ali Daei to become the second-highest all-time international goal scorer with 109 goals. The 37-year-old is now chasing his long-time rival Cristiano Ronaldo, who holds the record with 130 goals. Throughout the match, Argentina displayed their dominance, with Messi orchestrating plays and creating opportunities for his teammates. While Canada put up a valiant effort, they struggled to convert their chances and lacked the precision needed to challenge the formidable Argentine side. Canada's coach, Jesse Marsch, faced questions about his team's finishing abilities and tactical decisions following the loss. Despite some promising moments from his players, including midfielder Ismael Kone's improved performance, Canada failed to find the back of the net when it mattered most. As Argentina celebrates their victory and looks ahead to the final, Canada will regroup and prepare for the third-place match against the loser of Uruguay vs. Colombia. Marsch will undoubtedly analyze his team's performance and make adjustments to address their shortcomings in future competitions. The stage is now set for an exciting final showdown as Argentina awaits the winner of Uruguay vs. Colombia. Football fans can anticipate a thrilling clash between two talented teams vying for the prestigious Copa America title.
