Lionel Messi decisive again as Argentina advance to Copa America semifinal
The FC Barcelona star assisted twice along with scoring a stunning free-kick in Argentina’s thumping 3-0 win over Ecuador in the knock-out game.
Interestingly, the 90th-minute goal against Ecuador was Messi’s 58th goal from a direct free-kick. The FC Barcelona star is now four goals short of Diego Maradona’s Argentinean record of 62 direct free-kick goals in his career.
Argentina face Colombia in the semifinals and Messi is two games away from glory with his country for the first time.
