Lionel Messi scored his first goal of the tournament as reigning champions Argentina beat Canada 2-0 to reach the Copa America final.

Canada made a good start, but Argentina took the lead in the 23rd minute when Julian Alvarez latched onto Rodrigo De Paul’s through-ball and confidently beat Maxime Crepeau.

Shortly after half-time, Lionel Messi doubled Lionel Scaloni's men lead by deflecting Enzo Fernandez’s shot into the net, scoring his first goal of the tournament.

Although Canada threatened late in the match, Argentina maintained their clean sheet as they are now poised to defend their title in Sunday's final in Miami against Uruguay or Colombia.

La Albiceleste will aim to win back-to-back Copa Americas, similar to Spain's achievement of winning the 2008 and 2012 European Championships along with the 2010 World Cup.

Great performance by Argentina! So excited for them to defend their title in the final. Messi finally scoring his first goal of the tournament is just a cherry on top. Can't wait to see who they face between Uruguay and Colombia. Vamos Argentina!
