The long drought is finally over, Messi touches his first senior international trophy


Not like the World Cup final, this time, Messi ends the match with a grin.

Dhiraj Das, DNI: Today, Argentina won the Copa America final, the opponent was the biggest rival of them, Brazil. For Argentina, first and only goal came from Angel Di Maria’s feet that led Brazil to lose.

Finally, Messi lifted his international trophy for Argentina. A long drought of 28 years finally got some rain. Since 1993 Argentina has not bagged any major trophy, but finally Argentina won the match relying on Di Maria’s goal.

The first goal of the match and the winning goal for Argentina also came in 22nd minute at the Maracana stadium from Rodrigo de Paul’s long pass. The 33-year-old veteran striker, Angel Di Maria, didn’t miss that chance, and he lobbed that ball over the head of Brazilian goal keeper in the net.

That was a very high voltage final match between the world’s two all time football gaints, also the war between the world’s one of the best players in this era, Neymar and Messi.

Last time, when Argentina won any major trophy, Messi was only six years old. This ‘win’ is a big releif for Argentina. After all the superstar won his first trophy for his country.
Now after winning the match not only he won the trophy, he also got a hug from his opponent and his previous teammate of Barcelona, Neymar.
