Colombia ends 20-year curse vs Argentina

Colombia ends 20-year curse vs Argentina with 2-0 win

June 15, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
Goals by Roger Martínez and Duvan Zapata sealed the deal for Los Cafeteros against a dull Albiceleste side.

The 2019 Copa América did not start just how Lionel Messi and Co. expected, as the team dropped three points against Colombia.

Looking distracted and with Colombia dominating most of the game, La Albiceleste complicated their chances of success in this competition with this Matchday 1 loss. 

Colombia dominated the first half and came close to goal. Nevertheless, Argentina came close during the first ten minutes after the break. When the game entered the last 20 minutes, Roger Martínez drilled an impressive goal into the upper left-hand corner of Franco Armani's net. Fifteen minutes later, Duván Zapata sealed the deal for Los Cafeteros with a short-range shot.

Colombia managed to end a number of woeful streaks against La Albiceleste. For starters, their goal drought against Argentina is over.

If that was not enough, Colombia concluded a 12-year run without a win against La Albiceleste, whether the game was friendly or competitive.

Lastly, Colombia will no longer fear facing Argentina when they face them in a Copa América clash.

"Colombia defeated Argentina in a Copa América clash for the first time since 1999. That was the game in which Martín Palermo missed three penalties, remember?"

 

If you guys wondered what happened to Lionel Messi today, this tweet might help you understand his feelings.
