Lionel Messi Says the Copa America is Not What he Expected

Lionel Messi

Argentina are favourites to win the final in Buenos Aires on 24 July and take the title off old rivals Brazil, but they blew their chance to head Group A against to date.

Last Wednesday Argentina earned a 0-0 draw against Colombia.

Messi said, "It's not what we expected."

Tevez picked up a yellow card but failed to score, although it took a great save to deny the great striker when Lionel Messi put him through.

Substitute Sergio Aguero, possibly linked to Man City this summer, scored Argentina's equaliser after Edivaldo Rojas backheeled the Bolivians ahead at the start of the second half.

Rojas said: "I was extremely happy to score, but more important was the team performance. This was the bright spot, because playing Argentina on their home soil is always difficult."
