  • Copa America: How Colombia beat Messi-led Argentina 2-0

"We have to look at the mistakes we made, and find the positives".

The football legend then questioned the passion of the current Argentina team, saying - in not so diplomatic terms - that the players have to "feel" the shirt.

This summer's Copa America presents another opportunity for the country but the loss to Colombia has brought the impatience to the surface.

"Messi was close to turning us over, I'm sure he will in the next two games", he insisted. Mateus Uribe scored twice for Colombia and Duvan Zapata scored in stoppage time.

Messi had hoped to reverse a long trend of worldwide heartbreak with Argentina at the 2019 Copa America after the nation lost in the finals to Chile in both 2015 and 2016.

Meanwhile, Argentina will be hoping to silence doubters against Paraguay on Thursday, June 20, in their second group game.

Other players - good players at that - are there to take responsibility.

Pogba's image and charisma make him a gold mine

Japan distancing itself from U.S. claims of Iranian involvement in tanker attacks
Three weeks later, on May 12, Iran attacked four oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz, according to the White House. The US will send 1,000 extra troops to the Middle East to counter Iranian threats, it was announced on Monday night.

After a dour first half Argentina went down after the break to two well taken goals by Colombia.

Portuguese manager Carlos Queiroz, who only took over Colombia after leaving his job with Iran at the end of the Asian Cup in the UAE earlier this year, paid tribute to the side's collective effort.

Tempers threatened to boil over after Colombia winger Juan Cuadrado nailed Messi with a late challenge. Zapata was on the pitch just five minutes when he directed Jefferson Lerma's cross over the line.

"But now we have to lift our heads and keep going".

It was a true golazo, as Martinez collected a long switch, cut in on his right foot and left goalkeeper Franco Armani with little chance on a far-post rifle.

Argentina can not afford to lose again in their remaining two group-stage matches against Paraguay and Qatar.
