What a Copa America it has been thus far for Lionel Messi. He's scored several outstanding goals, including his free-kick stunner in the quarterfinals going up against Ecuador.
Now, Messi is hoping to get past Colombia in the semifinals and get Argentina to the final to face Brazil. With a win in that game, it'd give Messi his first major international title with Argentina. This is something he needs badly.
Messi has made it to the Copa America Final and World Cup Final, but never won. He can change that this summer. While Brazil potentially awaits, Messi has what it takes to lead his team. This feels like it could be his year.
