Barcelona legend Lionel Messi ends long wait for Copa America glory with Argentina

Barcelona legend Lionel Messi :

Barcelona icon Lionel Messi’s long wait for a first international trophy came to an end when Angel Di Maria scored the only goal as Argentina beat Brazil in the Copa America final.

Di Maria, 33, clung to Rodrigo De Paul looks through the ball and elegantly chipped Ederson’s header in the 22nd minute at Rio De Janeiro’s iconic Maracana Stadium. That delicious strike would prove to be enough to bring glory to their famous international compatriot after four previous losses in the major finals, and saw Los Albiceleste lift the silverware for the first time since 1993.

Messi – playing his 10th competition with Argentina – fell to the ground in joy at the final whistle, before being assaulted by his teammates and thrown into the air.

Attention will now be focused on a contract extension at Barcelona. The 34-year-old is technically a free agent.

Here’s how we covered it on social media:
