Lionel Messi won his first major trophy with his national team as Angel Di Maria's goal gave Argentina a 1-0 win over hosts Brazil in the Copa America final on Saturday.

The victory at the historic Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro ended Argentina's 28-year wait for a major trophy. Argentina had last tasted success at a major tournament in 1993 when the great Gabriel Batistuta's brace gave them a 2-1 win over Mexico in the Copa final in Ecuador.
