Messi Scores As Argentina Beat Canada To Reach Copa America Final

July 10, (THEWILL) – Argentina booked their place in the Copa America final after defeating Canada 2-0 at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

The reigning world champions dominated from the start, with Julian Alvarez opening the scoring in the first half. Lionel Messi added a second goal early in the second half to seal the victory.

Canada, making their debut appearance in the tournament, had surprised many by reaching the semi-finals. However, they were unable to match Argentina’s quality on the night. The Canadians did have a chance to equalise just before half-time, with Jonathan David forcing a fine save from Emiliano Martinez.

Argentina’s win extends their unbeaten run in the tournament and puts them in a position to defend their Copa América title. They will face either Uruguay or Colombia in the final. For Canada, the tournament represents a significant achievement despite the semi-final exit.

The victory marks Argentina’s third consecutive final appearance at a major tournament. They have not lost in normal time at a major tournament on US soil since the 1994 World Cup. Argentina will now look to add another trophy to their recent World Cup triumph when they contest the final.
