Lionel Messi celebrated effectively during the penalty shootout in the Copa America semi-final between Argentina and Colombia. Argentine media TyC Sports reported that Messi celebrated the right things from Argentine goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez like no other, shouted for the successful sanctions and took revenge on the former Barcelona defender Geri Mina
Although Messi does not know how to get angry or show too much emotion, he played in the defense of Colombia Mina, shouting “dance now” after the latter missed his penalty kick.

Goalkeeper Emilano Martinez, who tried to distract the Colombians’ players from the penalty spot with a bargain on the rubbish, was saved by Davinson Sanchez, Yerry Mina and Edwin Cardona.
Lionel Messi, Leandro Paredes and Lautaro Martinez scored for Argentina as they took a stand against the host country in Saturday’s final at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.
TyC Sports’ exclusive camera perfectly captured each of Messi’s gestures, but beyond the raw emotions it was the captain’s motivation to find joy in leading his side.
Messi also fell under a lot of anxiety from the Colombian defenders and after a particularly brutal treatment of Frank Fabra, the Barcelona star suffered an injury to his left ankle, which immediately began to bleed. He would continue to play the entire second half with a bloody ankle, but that did not stop him from surrendering during the shootings. He later remarked “it was easier” against European players.
“Already in the last Cup the group had become strong, it had finished with a good image and we are going from the lowest to the highest. “It’s often easier to play against Europeans than this kind of game, because there is more space and more is being played. ‘We tried and luckily we were given,'” the Argentina captain told TyC Sports after the game in an exclusive interview.
