Copa America: Messi scores stunner but Argentina held by Chile

Lionel Messi scored a stunning free kick as Argentina drew 1-1 with Chile after the Copa America paid a spectacular tribute to the legendary Diego Maradona.

Just before kick-off, Argentina legend Maradona was remembered with a dazzling light and effects display.

It saw a holographic version of the 1986 World Cup winner perform kick ups before clips of his goals were projected on to the pitch.

After the game got under way, Argentina took the lead 12 minutes before half-time when Messi picked himself up after being fouled just outside the area to bend in a free-kick for his 73rd international goal.

However, Chile levelled in the second half when Arturo Vidal was judged to have been fouled inside the box after a VAR review.

Vidal’s spot-kick was pushed on to the crossbar but Eduardo Vargas reacted quickly to head in.
