Lionel Messi of Argentina chipped the ball over Bolivia goalkeeper Carlos Lampe during the Group A match of the Copa America in Cuiaba on Tuesday morning.

Lionel Messi continued his strong performance in the Copa America with two goals and an assist, as Argentina confirmed its dominance in the group stage with a 4-1 victory over Bolivia in Cuiaba on Tuesday morning.

The Argentine superstar also became Argentina’s most limited international player on Monday, as it was his 148th appearance for Argentina; surpassing the mark previously owned by retired defender Javier Mascherano.

His two goals and one assist helped Argentina secure first place in Group A by hosting a quarter-final against Ecuador on Saturday.

The Barcelona striker, who holds the highest 75 goals for Argentina of all time, is also aiming to break two South American records: Pele as the national team’s top scorer (77 for Brazil) and Chile’s Sergio Livingston from 34 for most Copa America appearances ( Messi has 31).
