After 28 years of wait, Argentina finally has a trophy as it beat Brazil in the final of Copa America 2021 at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil,
Angel Di Maria’s 22nd-minute strike proved enough as the Albiceleste showed great composure and determination in defence to keep the Selecao out, a feat none of the teams have achieved in this edition of the tournament.
Lionel Messi, who has won all with Barcelona was only missing a trophy with his national team. With today’s win, that drought has come to an end.
It was a valiant effort by Brazil as it proved to be the better team in attack, but it couldn’t break down the resolute Argentine defense.
