Lionel Messi came on as substitute and scored a brilliant hat-trick as Argentina cruised into the Copa America knockout stages.
Well, Lionel Messi played less than half an hour – and he scored three goals and created one more. Brilliant, brilliant play from the best player in the world, and Argentina looked a different, and even more dangerous, team with him in. Panama did pretty well for about 60 minutes, but they crumbled badly – it didn’t help that they were forced to play with 10 men for an hour. But tonight was all about Messi. He’s good, isn’t he?
