Messi: It hasn’t been my best Copa America

While recognising that he has been far from his best in Brazil, the Barcelona star believes the grounds-keeping has also been sub-par

Argentina captain Lionel Messi took aim at the state of the pitches at the 2019 Copa America after helping his team through to a semi-final clash with Brazil.

Goals from Lautaro Martinez and Giovani Lo Celso saw the Albiceleste soar past Venezuela in a 2-0 victory on Friday in Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium.

Messi, however, once more failed to reproduce his best form, with a penalty against Paraguay his only goal in four matches so far in the tournament.
