Argentina vs Brazil score and updates
Di María, very sharp, scared the Brazilian defense again in the 28th minute. Cutting the ball from left to center and subjecting it to a deflection by Marquinhos to avoid another goal.
At 32, meanwhile, it was the turn of Lionel Messi. With little participation in that first half, to start and kick with danger from outside the area, near Ederson’s crossbar.
Brazil, meanwhile, ended the first half almost without disturbing the goal of Emiliano Martínez.
With Everton, Paquetá, and Neymar well contained. Tite’s team completely lacked ideas to break the well-buckled team of Lionel Scaloni, who went into halftime ahead.
Already in the second half, logically, Brazil changed its attitude. And from the outset, Richarlison had two dangerous chances. In the first one, he managed to convert but was canceled due to an advanced position. And in the second, Martínez, with a good save, prevented the tie.
Slowly, Argentina began to play dangerously closer to their goal, and Brazil, with more drive than football, took over the game.
The entry of Roberto Firmino by Fred changed the disposition of a Brazil urged by equality.
However, the local team never knew how to create a game circuit to complicate Argentina too much. Which in the second half was just limited to being correct in the marks and relays to neutralize the rival.
Despite this, Brazil had some situations. Such as a shot by Gabriel Barbosa that forced a superb blown by Emiliano Martínez to deflect the ball.
At the end of the counterattack, Argentina was able to liquidate him with two unbeatable situations.
First Messi failed an incredible heads-up after a great pass from De Paul and then from De Paul himself. He also failed to finish after coming face to face with Ederson.
Thus the things, the minutes were consumed and Argentina could return to touch the sky with the hands.
The Albiceleste is crowned champion of the CONMEBOL Copa América after 28 years and no less than against its classic rival and in the mythical Maracaná Stadium.
