Argentina gave Bolivia a proper thrashing in the final round of the Copa America group stages, winning the contest by 4-1. Unsurprisingly, Lionel Messi was the player who inspired his team throughout, scoring a brace and producing a lovely assist along the way.

It all started in the sixth minute, when the Barcelona superstar produced this fabulous chip to set up Alejandro Dario Gomez for the opening goal.

In the 33rd, he slotted coolly from the spot.

Three minutes before the break, Messi escaped an offside trap to latch onto this great pass from Sergio Aguero and make it 3-0.

Argentina finished top of Group A and will face Ecuador in the quarterfinals on Sunday.
