Argentina boss Lionel Scaloni says that his team will do well at the Copa America provided captain Lionel Messi “does what he does every Sunday.”

Messi heads into the tournament after topping the goalscoring charts across Europe again this season, racking up 51 goals in 50 games.

Scaloni says his team can shine at the tournament in Brazil due to the quality they have in attack.

“If we have a good performance as a team and, in addition, Messi does what he does every Sunday, surely we will do well,” he said.

”We know that we have pure dynamite above, high goal players, so if we are solid, we will have many possibilities, these players were born to win, to compete at these levels, to make them understand what it means to play with This shirt is the easiest, they are used to all this.”
