The Copa America Centenario Final is upon us and we have the two best teams in CONMEBOL squaring off once again. Argentina is led by arguably the best player in the world in Lionel Messi, who has been dominant once he became healthy enough to play in this tournament. Argentina reached the final on Tuesday by beating the United States 4-0 in Houston, but they seek more as they attempt to raise the Copa America Centenario trophy in New Jersey.
On the other side is Chile, the defending Copa America champions. Chile has notably felt slighted at having to defend their title one year after winning it for the first time in their history, and they have played incredibly well to be one of the last two teams standing. Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal and Claudio Bravo lead the Chileans, who reached the final by beating Colombia 2-0 in a Chicago semifinal that contained a 2.5 hour delay due to thunderstorms.
If la Albiceleste win this evening, it will be the first major tournament title brought back to Buenos Aires since the 1993 Copa America, a gap of 23 years. For la Roja, it would be their second major tournament trophy after last year's Copa America (a tournament they hosted). In front of a sellout MetLife Stadium crowd, we should see some fireworks and dynamic play on both sides of the field. Will Messi finally jump out of Diego Maradona's shadow and raise a major trophy? Or will the Chile's golden generation once again deny Messi his moment? Tune in tonight to find out.
