It's over, before time, after a play with the Chilean Medel. This is how Messi's participation in an America's Cup has ended, from which a bad memory will be taken, because everything went wrong.
The expulsion in Argentina-Chile for the third and fourth place of the Copa America is almost the logical conclusion to a tournament in which he has hardly been happy, as if since the elimination against Liverpool in the Champions the destiny was twisted for the soccer player.
The first match against Colombia was lost by Argentina and criticism has already begun; in Argentina it is not understood that the Messi of Barcelona barely appears when the albiceleste is put on.
Later, he improved, but on the 10th he complained about the state of the pitch during many matches and even acknowledged that his contribution to the Scaloni team was below expectations. He has not been a decisive Messi and he has missed his team.
When Argentina played the best, in the semifinals against Brazil, the defeat came. Messi exploded as he had never done before, against referees, kicks and decisions of VAR. It was a Messi with more complaints than ever, overcome by the circumstances.
The last meeting, the third and fourth place was already a punishment in itself: he did not have time to play it much: his mishap with Medel has meant the expulsion and the end. Now he needs vacations while waiting for Barcelona to sign his friend Neymar.
