Copa America: Messi reacts as Argentina qualify for semi-final


Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, refused to focus on personal accolades as they beat Ecuador 3-0 on Saturday, to qualify for the Copa America semi-final.

Messi scored a free-kick and laid on two assists, as they progressed into the last four.

The 34-year-old’s goal was his 76th goal for Argentina, taking him to within one of Pele’s South American records.

“I’ve always said that individual prizes are secondary, we’re here for something else,” Messi said.

“We have an objective and we’re focused on that.

“It was a hard match, we know how difficult an opponent they can be. The important thing is we’ve taken another step forward.”
