De Paul made no mistake in putting Argentina ahead at the halfway break. Although Ecuador threatened to equalize in the second half, Lionel Messi once again provided an opening for his team, this time with a beautifully weighted ball to Lautaro Martinez, who scored with six minutes remaining.

Piero Hincapie was sent off for a foul on Angel Di Maria, reducing Ecuador to ten men. Messi took the resulting free-kick from the edge of the penalty box, and goalkeeper Hernan Galindez couldn’t handle it.

Despite personal accolades, Lionel Messi was intent on playing well for Argentina.

Lionel Messi now leads the Copa America 2021 goals and assists statistics after his two assists and a goal against Ecuador.

“As I often say, individual [moments] are secondary; we’re here for a reason.” I’d want to commend the crew on their efforts; we’ve been away from our families for several days.“ We were aware of the opponent’s difficulty, therefore it was a really difficult encounter. It was a tough fight until we got the goal, and then things got a little twisted. What matters is that we took another step forward.

“We attempted to play, but we couldn’t at times, and the pitch didn’t help us much.” We had a crucial match to play. One of our goals was to be one of the top four teams. We need to rest now because we only have a few days until our next game,” Messi explained.
Argentina will meet Colombia in the Copa America 2021 semi-finals after their victory. In their quarter-final match, Colombia defeated Uruguay on penalties.
