Messi, Argentina Trounce the US Head To Copa Final
Last night the US were completely outplayed by a superior Argentina team. The US got demolished 4-0 conceding a goal in the third minute which really set the tempo for how the rest of this game was going to go down. Messi scored an absolute beauty of a free kick in the 31st minute putting it in the top right corner leaving Brad Guzan no chance to make a stop. The US just looked flat out uninspired and uncreative.
Argentina dominated possession and had 93% passing accuracy in the game which is unheard of. When the US had the ball they did nothing with it and would lose it right away. Javier Mascherano played a great game today and I hope that his Juventus move really does happen.
Scary moment occurred when Lavezzi fell over the side boards and landed awkwardly. Had to get stretchered off but he stood up and should not be severely hurt.
Argentina now await the winner of Columbia and Chile both of whom will give Argentina a much more competitive game than the US did today.
I see Columbia pulling off the win and the soccer world will be blessed with a final consisting of Cuadrado, James, Messi, Higuain, and Banega.
