Lionel Messi's glorious piece of skill was the highlight of last night's Copa semi

The Barcelona superstar was at his influential best against Paraguay.

IN A MOVE that was reminiscent of the famous Champions League semi-final run that left Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng on the ground, Lionel Messi embarrassed two Paraguay defenders in a 6-1 win at the Copa America.

Up 3-1 in the second half, Messi won the ball near midfield and beat one Paraguay defender. With another Paraguay defender on his hip and a third defender coming toward him, Messi juked to his left, the defenders ran into each other, and Argentina had a wide open goal.

Of course, it’s not even the only mesmerising run Lionel Messi has produced in this Copa America.
