It was one of the most expected appointments of the Glass America 2019, and although there was battle, Brazil won to Argentina and avoided the surprise. Although the 'albiceleste' gave the face, the decision of the 'canarinha' and his greater precision in the areas sufficed to put him in the final, with goals of Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino that they leave it to a step to aim another victory home.

The combined that directs Lionel Scaloni improved his image, but this did not suffice him to avoid the discontent. They are already a few years of discussions on which is the most adapted project to break with the bad series, since in spite of keeping an innate competitiveness, the shortage of results is really worrisome, and more explaining that in his rows is one of the best players of the history, Leo Messi.

They are already 26 years since Argentina conquered his last trophy, in the edition of 1993 that took place in Ecuador. In that competition imposed to the invited Mexico in the final (2-1), thanks to a doublet of Gabriel Batistuta that left in at all the so much of Benjamín Galindo, that had equalised the contention from the eleven metres.

But then they began the doubts, and not even a recent reaction has been sufficient to go back to triumph. 1995, 1997, 1999 and 2001 they moved it away of the decisive meetings, to which went back with defeat in 2004. After the 2-2 in statutory time, Brazil imposed in the penaltis. In 2007 it repeated the 'seleçao' with a rotundo 3-0, before Uruguay left it in quarter-finals in 2011, when it was anfitrina of the competition. Chile was his hangman in 2015 and 2016, in both occasions in the fateful batch.

In spite of these borrones, the 'albiceleste' keeps like second qualifier in the list of winners of the Glass America. Uruguay leads the statistics thanks to his 15 entorchados -the last of them in 2011-, precisely by in front of Argentina, that has 14, and of Brazil, that closes the podium with 8 and will treat to avoid that the 'red' achieve a triplete consecutive that would leave it with three conquests.

The ordeal of Leo Messi with Argentina continues

The situation of Argentina is graver if it fits by the presence of Leo Messi, that has not been sufficient to break with the bad series. The '10', eternal triunfador in the FC Barcelona, has not attained to carry to his selection by the correct way, and have been better or worse, always has finish in the same place, deleted ahead of time. To his 32 years resists to leave the combined national, but the opportunities finish and it will be necessary to see if his curriculum will remain without a longed for international attainment.
