Copa America final - Chile vs Argentina
Posted 03. july 2015
The final is here - Chile vs Argentina. Since throwing away a two-goal lead in the second half of its group game against Paraguay in this Copa America 17 days ago, Gerardo Martino's men had threatened to take teams apart but had not quite managed it. Tata's team restored its two-goal lead following a majestic move early in the second half involving Pablo Zabaleta, Lucas Biglia, Messi and then Pastore, who drove forward and released Angel Di Maria to convert with a precise angled drive. This is what Argentina had been threatening, and the way the team circulated the ball with speed and skill for the third goal will have pleased Martino. With players like Messi, Di Maria and Pastore in full flow, Argentina will be very hard to stop. The final will be played on Saturday at 11pm.
