Storylines

Argentina: Could this be Lionel Messi’s last game for Argentina following more cup heartbreak? That remains to be seen, and it’s always hard to get up for a game like this, but this is a chance for Messi to create some positive vibes with the next Copa America just a year away.

Chile: They can’t believe they lost to Peru in the semis, and by a 3-0 score, no less. Now they have to shift focus quickly to this match and try to continue to build. With aging stars, their window for another title may have just closed.
