Chile vs. Argentina: hosts tame Lionel Messi, win 4-1, Copa America 2015 final scores

Chile has mesmerized the soccer world with superlative wins. They tamed Lionel Messi and everyone else. They won 4-1 in penalty.

A report says “It would take a heart of stone not to feel happy for Chile: they took Argentina all the way, and were, on balance, a deserving champion. It wasn’t a classic match, but it was extremely close fought, and Chile showed real desire, spirit and commitment. Argentina had two big chances through Lavezzi and Aguero, and Alexis might have scored twice for Chile, but Chile did the business in the shootout. Aranguiz’s penalty was unbelievable: he just whacked it. The cojones to do that in such a situation!”

Copa America 2015 final match between hosts Chile and tournament favorites Argentina is going to be a stormy affair. The best of South American soccer will be on display and bith teams will try their best to win the title and emerge as continental champions.

Though many soccer fans must be ruing the absence of Brazil and Uruguay from the final match, many others realise the fact that the best teams – best performing at least- have come thus far.copa america

Chile, have actually amazed the entire world through their resilience and exemplary performance. Their top players including midfield talisman Arturo Vidal, and the on-field ones of defender Gonzalo Jara have been extremely impressive thus far and as a team they have performed supebly.

They have home advantage too. But the home crowd will certainly expect super human show from the team. Nonetheless on paper Argentina are the best team in the tournament altogether, and a team that seem to be coming into form at just the right moment. They blitzed Paraguay 6-1 in the semifinal, with Ángel di María, Sergio Agüero and Gonzalo Higuaín all among those on the scoresheet. Don’t forget about a certain Lionel Messi, who’s not too shabby himself.
