Messi breaks down in tears as he expresses his feelings as a new all-time South America top scorer.

Messi was able to celebrate the triumph in the Copa America before his audience and also became the top scorer for South American teams, surpassing Pele's all-time top scorer record for South American teams.

Lionel Messi could not contain the tears in his emotion after his hat-trick against Bolivia last night and the celebration in front of his audience for winning the Copa America.

"I have dreamed of this for a long time." “It is a unique moment because of how it happened and after so much waiting. There was no better way for it to be and to be able to be here celebrating is something incredible,” the captain expressed his feelings after the 3-0 victory that leaves the Albiceleste as guard for Brazil in the South American Qualifiers.

"I cannot do more than so much happiness. This is what I had always dreamed of and it was given to me . For my family who is watching me and for all Argentines. The truth is that I am very excited. My mother and my brothers are on the platform, who suffered a lot too. I am very happy, "he emphasized before breaking down in tears in television statements after the meeting." The truth is that I always say: individual awards are secondary, because we are here for something else, "he said when asked by his record of 79 goals, which allowed him to surpass Pelé (77) and be the top scorer for teams in South America.
