Argentina captain Lionel Messi was delighted with his side's display as they destroyed Paraguay 6-1 to advance to the Copa America final.
ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno reacts to Argentina's convincing 6-1 win over Paraguay, now advancing for their first Copa America final since 1993.
The ESPN FC crew discuss Argentina's complete performance against Paraguay, led by Angel Di Maria's two goals and assist.

CONCEPCION, Chile -- Lionel Messi has not scored from open play for Argentina in a competitive game in more than a year. That's 945 minutes, since his second goal against Nigeria back in the final group game of the World Cup.

What's more, if you include friendlies but discount the two goals he scored in a 7-0 pummeling of Hong Kong -- ranked 164 by FIFA -- in October of last year, then the streak is even longer, surpassing 1,200 minutes. That's more than 13 games, more than a third of a club season.

Maybe his mind flashed back to a December day in 2011 in...

Joan Laporta has thrown his hat into the ring to run for a second spell as president of FC Barcelona.
The ESPN FC crew discuss Neymar-less Brazil as Craig Burley does not feel half the players in the side would have made it into the squad years ago.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley has no issue with Neymar leaving Copa America earlier following his four-match ban and questions Dunga for his statements about Neymar.
Brazil striker Neymar says "it would kill him from the inside" if he stayed and trained with the rest of the squad at the Copa America, as he serves a four-match ban.
