Argentina finally took their revenge on Brazil when they defeated the Selecao by 1-0 to win the Copa America at Maracana Stadium after they've lost their previous three finals in 2007, 2015, and 2016.
Angel Di Maria's goal in the first-half made the difference between both teams as they engaged in a serious tussle. Brazil did all their best to get back into the game but it just seemed that it wasn't their day.
Tite will be proud of the work he's with the team because they were good today and were just unlucky.
Neymar was among the Brazil top performers and he had the following numbers vs Argentina:
84 Touches (most)
34 Accurate passes (82.9%)
9 Dribbles (most)
4 Key passes (most)
16 Duels won (most)
5 Times fouled (most)
However, the Paris Saint-Germain player breaks down in tears at full-time of Brazil's loss to Argentina which stirred reactions on the internet.photo credits: Copa America via Twitter
