Argentina vs Brazil: Lionel Messi, Argentina win Copa America Over Brazil. Angel Di Maria scored the game’s lone goal with a beautiful lob in the first half, with most of the game’s best opportunities coming in a late flurry during the final minutes.

There was no reply from the Brazil side, the most of the first half a stormy fight for land rather than a genuine flowing game plan for Argentina with a single dominant entity – the more organized side defensively.

When it came down, the opening goal was simplicity itself: a diagonal straight cross to Angel Di Maria, totally overlooked by Renan Lodi, then wondrously pulled into the net from the PSG forward over Ederson’s head.

As expected, Tite’s formation of Brazil in a four two three one system. What they do have are two defensively solid holding midfielders sitting there shielding that backline for Brazil. 

Brazil had provided little in the final third as the half-hour mark went around besides the Casemiro efforts of range and a half-connection with the Neymar attack.

In short, this did not matter at all. As the resolved Albiceleste continued to hold on until in nearly 30 years, they heard the most anticipated of all last whistles: that one which marked its first Copa America triumph after the triumph inspired by Gabriel Batistuta from 1993, and that Messi’s long wait added a major international Title.
