Caravario: Messi abandoned in final


Messi once again abandoned by Argentina in Copa final

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop believes Lionel Messi looks nothing like his Barcelona self when he throws on the Argentina kit, but Steve Nicol explains Messi is only missing winning a final.

BUENOS AIRES -- According to some partisan reaction -- Juan Sebastian Veron and certain journalists -- you're not allowed to question Lionel Messi. You're only allowed to express appreciation and admiration.

Unfortunately, because everyone puts their greatest hopes in Messi (not a day goes by reminding him he's the best in the world), he is also subject to the highest standards. And when the team loses, he shoulders the blame.

That's how the logic of football works. The storm will surely pass...

Under the radar friendly the key moment in Chile's Copa title run

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop believes Lionel Messi looks nothing like his Barcelona self when he throws on the Argentina kit, but Steve Nicol explains Messi is only missing winning a final.

And so the dust has settled on Chile's historic Copa America win. A few days ago the population were charging around in celebration, yelling 'Chi-Chi-Chi, Le-Le-Le' at the tops of the voices. That has now been replaced by a quiet glow of happiness. And with the distance of a few days' perspective, the path to victory becomes clearer.

It now seems evident that there was key moment at the end of March, when Chile lost 1-0 to Brazil in a friendly played in London.

Alexis Sanchez threatened by burnout after overexertion for Arsenal, Chile

After scoring the penalty that won the Copa America for Chile, Alexis Sanchez dashed away to celebrate, as you would in such a moment of joy.

He had secured Chile's first Copa win in their 99-year history and added to his healthy collection of medals, which include a La Liga title with Barcelona and the FA Cup with Arsenal, as well as a UEFA Super Cup medal won during his time in Catalonia.

There's a decent chance more could come for him at club level this season, too. The signing of goalkeeper...

Copa America brought Chile success, Argentina frustration and much more

Chile held their nerve to win a penalty shootout vs. Argentina and claim their first Copa America title.

SANTIAGO, Chile -- It unfolded the way many previous Copa America tournaments have unfolded. It had the tension, the passion and the familiarity, as well as the sense that you were witnessing another battle in a never-ending conflict and that you will never get closure.

When a competition is this old -- 99 years and counting -- and so drenched in history, it inevitably becomes self-referential. The FA Cup in England does the same and you can't blame either.

In a football landscape dominated by big...

Eduardo Vargas and Lionel Messi shine in the Copa America's top moments

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop believes Brazil lack a self-identity without the likes of Neymar in the side, but also attributes the lack of experience to their poor performances.

Now that the 2015 Copa America is done, ESPN FC's Miguel Delaney takes a look at the top 10 moments that helped shape the tournament.

10. Venezuela stun Colombia, Falcao struggles

The Copa's first big shock, and one that showed why Colombia so struggled to replicate their revelation of a World Cup. With manager Jose Pekerman insistent on disrupting the formation of Brazil 2014 by trying to integrate an off-form Radamel Falcao, his side lost all their verve, allowing Venezuela to easily frustrate...

Goalkeeper -- Claudio Bravo (Chile)

In a tournament where the goalkeeping was at a fairly high standard, there was no one outstanding candidate. Bravo gets the nod, though. He may not have been entirely happy with the second goal he conceded in the 3-3 draw with Mexico, but that aside, he was flawless, providing leadership and standing up big in the vital moments. His reflex save from a Sergio Aguero header in the first half of the final was a key point in Chile's win.

Right-back -- Luis Advincula...
