One goal and two assists
Leo Messi made his first appearance as a starter in the Copa America and he showed once again why he is the best player in the world. Two assists and one goal to put Argentina in semifinals after beating Venezuela (4-1).
He started the party in the 3rd minute with a glorious assist to Higuaín.
In the second half he scored his goal breaking Gabriel Batistuta's all time record with the 'albiceleste'.
And finally another assist to close the score. Erik Lamela took profit of Messi's first touch to score the fourth and put Argentina straight into the semifinals (4-1).
