Argentina are the champions of Copa America Cup.

This after Angel Di Maria scored a goal in the first half on the twenty Second Minute.

This is the first major international title that their captain Lionel Messi has won while playing with them.

He missed three in 2007, 2015 and 2017.

Messi also won the Best Player award and the top Scorer, though the best player award was also given to Neymar Jr because the two helped their teams get to the finals.

Brazil piled on the pressure in an exciting second half but even with five strikers on the field they could not get an equaliser against an Argentine defence protected by the outstanding Rodrigo De Paul.
