With Argentina coming with four consecutive victories, everyone was pretty much sure about the fate of the Canadian defense. Not much later, ace striker Julian Alvarez found a beautiful long ball from Rodrigo De Paul, which the Man City forward netted quite comfortably, making it 1-0 for Argentina.

The half-end score stood at 1-0. Moments later, a shot from Enzo Fernandez deflected from the great Lionel Messi, marking the Barca legend's name on the scoresheet. With goals from Alvarez and Messi, Argentina advanced comfortably to the Copa America Final.

After the match, the synonym of greatness, brilliance, and excellence on the football field, Lionel Messi left his fans emotional, saying,

"“Yes, I am aware that these are the last battles… I am enjoying them to the fullest”"

Though it's pretty clear that Messi's football career is moving towards the end, the Argentine still manages to mesmerize football fans with his brilliance in the football arena. His recent match endeavors against Canada saw the former Barca winger get another MOTM.

The goal against Canada was extra special in many terms. With this, Leo Messi became the first individual to score in 6 Copa Tournaments. Moreover, this 2-0 victory in the Copa semifinal established him as the player with the highest victories in Copa America.

Another beautiful coincidence, which mesmerized Barca fans, was that the day Leo Messi got the MOTM award for his heroics, the youth Barca sensation Lamine Yamal also bagged the award for his wondergoal against France. Hopefully, the 16-year-old goes to replicate what Lionel Messi has done for FC Barcelona, marking his name along the greats in the rich history of the Catalan club.
