    Lionel Messi and Argentina Beat Brazil in Copa América Final

    Agency-  Lionel Messi finally ticked the last empty box up his glittering soccer career on Saturday night, leading Argentina past host Brazil, 1-0, within the final of the Copa América in Rio de Janeiro.
    The trophy was Messi’s first with Argentina after a string of painful, agonizing, maddening failures, including perhaps the foremost demoralizing defeat of his career — against Germany within the World Cup final — inside an equivalent stadium, Rio’s hulking Maracanã, in 2014.

    When the whistle blew to finish the ultimate , Messi — his relief palpable — dropped to his knees and was immediately surrounded by his teammates. Moments later, they were lifting him above their shoulders and tossing him within the air.
    In more than a decade at the highest of his sport, Messi, 34, had won nearly every soccer honor imaginable together with his Spanish club team, Barcelona: every award, every accolade, every cup, championship and trophy.
