Argentines celebrate after Copa America soccer victory over Brazil

Global News published this video item, entitled “Argentines celebrate after Copa America soccer victory over Brazil” – below is their description.

Argentine fans were overjoyed after their team beat Brazil 1-0 on Saturday to win the Copa America and Argentina’s first major soccer title in 28 years.

A crowd of thousands gathered at the Obelisk monument in Buenos Aires, Argentina’s capital to celebrate the record-equalling championship, despite the coronavirus pandemic.

Forward Angel Di Maria, starting for just the second time in the Copa, justified his selection by scoring the game’s only goal midway through the first half. Brazil piled on the pressure in an exciting second, but even with five strikers on the field, the team could not get an equalizer against an Argentine defence protected by Rodrigo De Paul.

Argentina’s win was a particular triumph for legendary striker Lionel Messi, who picked up his first title in a blue-and-white shirt after more than a decade of club and individual honours.

The victory was Argentina’s 15th Copa America triumph, drawing level with Uruguay as the most successful team in the tournament’s history.
