Lionel Messi began his charge for the golden boot as he scored a sublime free kick in Argentina’s 1-1 draw with Chile. The Argentine will, however, want to be at his best for the tournament as he still searches for his first major international honour with his national team, and it could well be his last Copa America in doing so.
Messi was in great form before the Chile game as well, scoring 30 goals and providing nine assists for Barcelona this season. Having been partially rested at the end of the season with Barcelona, Messi will be wanting to carry Argentina to the Copa America and avenge the final loses of 2015 and 2016.
The legend of the game is 3/1 to claim the Lionel Messi Copa America top scorer
