The Copa America quarterfinals reached a conclusion on Saturday night in Goiânia, and Argentina affirmed their status as top picks and progressed to the elimination round with a 3-0 success over Ecuador, with Lionel Messi straightforwardly associated with every one of the three objectives for the Albiceleste.

Argentina began well and had some opportunities of a lifetime almost immediately, with the greatest of them returning on a dreadful pass by Gruezo that gave Lionel Messi a one-on-one with the goalkeeper, however the skipper by one way or another missed it and hit the post.

In any case, Messi wasn’t finished being effective in the game, and he was engaged with the principal objective with a stunning help to Rodrigo De Paul for the opener.

Ecuador contended energetically in the subsequent half and caused a lot of issues, yet Emi Martínez and the Argentina guard held solid until the 84th moment, when Di María took the ball high up the pitch and Messi got his second help of the night to set up Lautaro Martínez who made it 2-0 for the Albiceleste.

Then, at that point Hincapié cut down Di María inside the crate and Argentina got a punishment, yet the choice was turned around by VAR and Argentina were given a free-kick all things being equal. That was in reality uplifting news, since we had the opportunity to see Messi score an supreme PEACH of a free-kick with a rocket into the top corner.

Two helps and a splendid objective, and a date with Colombia in the elimination rounds. Messi is two games from wonder with his nation, and he looks prepared and hungry.
