Lionel Messi ended his wait for a first major international title as Argentina beat Brazil in the Copa America final

Tears of joy in the eye of Argentine football star, Lionel Messi at the full-time whistle as he finally claimed top-level honours with his country in his 10th major tournament.

Messi, 34, was dropped to the ground in joy swiftly mobbed by his team-mates, before being hurled in the air in celebration as the game between Argentina and Brazil ended in lone goal win

It has been 15 years since Messi first represented Argentina at a major tournament and after four World Cups and six Copa America appearances, taking in 53 matches, he finally has the major international title he – and his country – has craved.

Neymar feel distressed as he failed to lead Brazil to their 10th Copa title, while Argentina added to their 14 continental crowns.
