Chile Vs Argentina - Copa America Final LivePublished July 4, 2015 by Sol FH
Chile vs Argentina in the 2015 Copa America Final live at 21:00 GMT. Will the host nation defeat Messi?
The 2015 Copa America final promises to be an action-packed thriller in Santiago. Chile, the host nation have a chance to win their first ever Copa America, and where better to do so then in front of tens of thousands of fans. There might be a problem with that though, as Lionel Messi and the rest of the Argentinian Men's National Team are on the other side of the pitch. Argentina have not won a Copa title in over 20 years and it would be the first time Messi gets a piece of serious silverware with La Albiceleste.
Messi vs Medel
All eyes will be on Messi tonight and the man that is in charge of defending his genious attacks, Gary Medel. Medel plays for Inter Milan and is an excellent defender, able to read plays and become a real thorn in even the best players' sides. He will have a lot of help from Sergio Aguero, Angel Maria, and Gonzalo Higuain, but as Paraguay found out the hard way, Messi has the ability to run through an entire team with his ball control and dribbling skills.
Mascherano vs Vidal
Javier Mascherano vs. Arturo Vidal will be another hot battle on the pitch, as Vidal the Chilean key player, just a few days after his embarrassing DUI scandal, will be trying to get his redemption by giving his home country their first ever championship. Barcelona star Javier Mascherano is familiar with Vidal's play and will be looking to beat him again, as he did in the UEFA Champions League Final, in which Barcelona beat Vidal's Juventus less than a month ago.
