In the 2021 Copa America final in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday, two global football giants and eternal opponents will compete for the title of the best national team in South America.
Lionel Messi, 34, is looking to finally win his first trophy for the Argentine national team. This will end Albiceleste’s 28-year Copa America drought.
At the same time, Messi’s former Barcelona teammate and long-time Brazilian star Neymar missed the 2019 Copa America due to injury and is seeking his first Copa America championship. Brazil is the favorite of the finals: it plays at home and has won every America’s Cup held before.
At the 2021 America’s Cup, the first appearance of fans should make the atmosphere in Maracana more lively: about 5,000 people will attend (10% of the officially permitted stadium capacity). The organizer distributes free tickets evenly among the teams.
Sports news will provide real-time updates, scores and highlights throughout the finals. Please pay attention to all the latest news about the America’s Cup below:

ARG: Di Maria (DePaul)-22 minutes.
Updates and highlights from Brazil to Argentina
Halftime: Brazil 0, Argentina 1
46th minute: The second half is underway. Roberto Firmino of Liverpool will play in the Brazilian midfielder Fred. This allowed Casemiro to keep the center alone to protect the back line.
Intermission: That’s it for the first 45 games. Argentina will be satisfied with the way things are going. Albiceleste took the lead, and Brazil did not cause them many problems. Brazilian coach Tite will have to make some substitutes. The home team needs a spark.
1-In the first half of the match against Brazil, Argentina only shot on goal. There were 3 shots in total. This is the least number of shots in the first half of the Copa America since they defeated Brazil 2-0 in the semi-finals in 2019 ( The target is 0, there are 6 in total).

43 minutes: Argentine right back Montiel must take a corner kick, this is the first game of the game. Neymar scored a header from a corner kick and bounced near the penalty spot, but no one could shoot the ball directly to the goal.
37th minute: Goal scorer Di Maria was injured on the sidelines. It didn’t look good, but after some treatment, he came back and tried to get rid of it.
33 minutes: It’s now Leandro Paredes (Leandro Paredes) of Argentina. Neymar got a yellow card for a foul on a shot. Brazil’s free kick was within range, but Neymar kicked the ball out of the wall.
32nd minute: Not much has happened since the goal was scored. But Lionel Messi just made a tackle to show you his desire for this trophy.
22nd minute: the goal! Argentina takes the lead. Rodrigo De Paul made a long pass to Angel Di Maria, who defeated Brazilian left-back Renan Lodi and moved the ball higher than the goalkeeper. Brazil was stunned.
18th minute: This is how rough the tackle is: look at what happened to Neymar’s shorts.
16th minute: The best highlights of the first quarter of an hour:
13th minute: The first real threat and Neymar almost got shot, but Argentina’s Couti Romero thwarted the opportunity. The daunting challenge is flying, and the complaint has begun.
11th minute: It stopped in the first 10 minutes. The two teams started cautiously. When Argentina attacks, they want to start from the left.
Minute 8: In this photo with his so-called friend, Messi has a feeling of “taking his hands away from me”:
Minute 3: Yellow card already! Fred of Brazil was warned for driving a nail on Montiel, but it should be red! It is impossible for the referee to show him a red card in the 3rd minute.
Minute 1: We have one minute left, and the Uruguayan referee has spoken for Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni! This will be great.
7:56 p.m. EDT: The national anthem is ready. Competing time:
7:52 p.m. EST: This is what the crowd looks like in Maracanã:
As far as Brazil is concerned, this will not be the European Cup, and it will not be more. But seeing the public in the America’s Cup final, even that, is wonderful. pic.twitter.com/m7pFMkrKlO

7:42 p.m. EST: When Messi was on the field, Argentina’s record against Brazil was not good:
11-Lionel Messi played 11 matches against Brazil (W4 D1 L6), which was one of the losses in the 2007 America’s Cup final.
