Argentina is satisfied with a draw with Chile

Once again, Argentina was unable to win over Chile and was content with a 1-1 draw in the opening campaign of the two teams in the Copa America in Brazil.

Lionel Messi scored a goal from one of his distinctive free-kicks in the first half, but Eduardo Vargas responded with a goal in favor of Chile as the two teams tied in Rio de Janeiro on Monday.

When the two teams met in the World Cup qualifiers earlier this month, Chilean goalkeeper Claudio Bravo saved one of Messi’s free kicks in an acrobatic manner, and another hit the goal frame, but this time the Barcelona player excelled and fired a superb shot into the top corner from 25 meters in the 33rd minute.

Although they beat Argentina on penalties in the 2015 and 2016 Copa America finals, Chile has never beaten their neighbors in a 90-minute match in this tournament, and their task became more difficult after Messi opened the scoring.
