Twenty-eight years and six days had to pass for Argentina to become champion of the Copa América in a new edition, this time against Brazil at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

With a little showy football for both teams, a goal from Ángel di María was enough to defeat the host at home and lift the title.

The Argentine consecration has represented equaling the maximum historical amount of fifteen crowns that only Uruguay had.

But nevertheless, the wait is over for Lionel Messi who managed to lift his first title, after fifteen years, twenty two months and ten days, for the first time Argentina defeats Brazil since 1937 in a major tournament final.
