Copa America 2024: Argentina await Uruguay, Colombia in final

Argentina have booked their place in the final of the Copa America 2024, thanks to a 2-0 victory over Canada on Tuesday night.

Julián Álvarez put the Albiceleste ahead in the 22nd minute.

The Manchester City striker controlled a long pass from Rodrigo De Paul and slipped the ball through the legs of goalkeeper Maxime Crépeau for his ninth international goal.

Messi added the second, touching home Enzo Fernández’s shot following a poor Ismaël Koné clearance in off the face of Crépeau.

It was his first goal of the tournament. Messi has 28 goals in his last 25 matches for Argentina and 14 in Copa America play, three shy of the record. He has scored against 38 different nations.
