Bad start for the Argentinian National team in Copa America. The draw against Paraguay in the debut of the 'albiceleste' wasn't in the plans of Gerardo Martino's men. Two very different halves that ended with the final 2 to 2. After the match, the captain of the team, the Barça player Leo Messi talked in the press mixed zone to value the defeat.

"We are angry because after the 2-0 of the first half we ended losing the match and we didn't expect so," despite that, Messi doesn't consider that the situation may be worth worrying about and he is looking to the next match: "It's time to think about Uruguay, we have to be relaxed. We know he must win and we will go for the match like we always did with Tata."

Testing the match against Paraguay, Messi made a difference between both halfs, being better at the first and with exchange of blows at the second one: "At the first half they were closed behind, we had more the ball but in the comeback things changed a little bit and we tried to play more. We didn't take advantage of spaces there were at their back and maybe it was our mistake that we didn't have the ball."

The team managed by Gerardo Martino will play against Uruguay during the early morning of Thursday (1.30 CEST).
