Lionel Messi saves Argentina from Copa America elimination

Lionel Messi saves Argentina from Copa America elimination

"Argentina are the clear favourites and they need to win", Sanchez said.

As it happens, he hasn't, and instead we are left to lament the incompetence of his worldwide teammates who appear unable to deal with the fact that they have the GOAT on their team.

"We knew that it was not easy to come play Copa America, we were searching for a team, for a system", Messi said. "We're on the right track but we're still a long way from achieving all we really want", Rodriguez told reporters.

While Messi's men are bottom of Group B, a win over Qatar in the final group game could give them a ticket to the quarter-finals. [The squad] is hurt by the situation because we can't manage to win a game.

"It would be insane not to advance when three teams are practically guaranteed in the next round", Messi said drawing with Paraguay on Wednesday.

"We have a very hard game ahead of us to qualify but we'll give it our all to reach the next round".

A video of hers also took the internet by storm where she can be seen grooving to "Rock The Party" during the magazine photoshoot. Nick's post left his actress wife Priyanka Chopra teary-eyed as he wrote , "Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there".

"We are proud with our display against Colombia".

"We arrived with chances of going through", Sanchez said.

"We controlled the first half but Paraguay scored from their first attack with a nice counterattack from Miguel Almiron". As their talisman and captain, all of Argentina will be hoping Messi can weave his magic to avoid humiliation. Both were friendlies, against China in 1984 (0-1) and Japan in 2010 (0-1).

"It would insane if we couldn't progress from the group given that there are practically three teams that go through", said Messi, who will turn 32 on Monday.

Against Paraguay, a risky attacking team that can cause plenty of problems with Óscar Cardozo, Miguel Almirón and Derlis González up front, the Albiceleste will need to find a way to play well and more importantly get three points. Argentina, which had opened with a 2-0 loss to Colombia, stayed with one point from two matches in Group B. Qatar, which lost 1-0 to Colombia earlier Thursday, also had one point but was ahead on the tiebreakers.

- Argentina have won their last six games against Asian countries on neutral venues: three in World Cups, one in the Confederations Cup and two in friendlies.
