USA 0-4 Argentina

For all that Lionel Messi has little interest in breaking records, he continues to make a habit of it. La Pulga chalked up another landmark in Argentinian football history on Tuesday, moving past Gabriel Batistuta to become the country’s highest goalscorer of all time.

In stroking a superb free-kick just inside the post halfway through the first-half of the Copa America Centenario semi-final against USA, Messi scored his 55th goal for his country, one more than Batigol. In the process, he helped La Albiceleste cruise to a 4-0 defeat of the tournament hosts and move into the final for the second time running. (21 JUN 2016)
