Lionel Messi cries tears of joy brining Copa America trophy home to Argentina
You already knew how much winning the Copa America meant to Lionel Messi. After all the scrutiny he faced over the years, Messi was finally able to bring home a trophy with Argentina, taking down Brazil in the Copa America Final.
It will go down as one of the best moments of his career, everyone knows that. Well, months later, things were made even more special for Messi by bringing the trophy home for the Argentina fans to see.
As you'll be able to see in the video below, Messi was brought to tears on Thursday night. You've simply got to love seeing this.
Lionel Messi is so proud to bring the Copa America trophy back to Argentina. The GOAT is genuinely in tears 🥺🇦🇷— Pitch Invaders (@InvadersPitch) September 10, 2021
You can't blame Messi whatsoever for having this reaction. This was a dream come true. On top of lifting that trophy, Messi also powered Argentina to a dominant win over Bolivia on Thursday evening.
The Argentines won 3-0, with Messi scoring all three goals. With his hat-trick, he's now the all-time leading goal scorer in CONMEBOL history, passing someone by the name of Pele. Maybe you've heard of him?
Once Messi ends up hanging up his cleats, he'll go down as one of the best players the world has ever seen. He's got more to accomplish before retiring, though, as he's focused on trying to help Paris Saint-Germain win the Champions League this season. Don't be shocked when Messi helps the team get things done.
