Messi belatedly shines for Argentina

Messi belatedly shines for Argentina

Lionel Messi finally played up to expectations on Monday, just in time to help Argentina into the quarterfinals of the Copa America.
After two lackluster matches, Messi came through with a great performance to lead Argentina to a 3-0 win over Costa Rica, just when it looked like the host nation might suffer a humiliating group-stage exit.
He set up two goals and played at the vaunted level he so often displays with club side Barcelona but which too often had eluded him on the international stage.
