The 34-year-old got extremely emotional after the final whistle went off. He was seen in tears while his teammates tossed him in the air to celebrate the win. An elated Messi also consoled a tearful Neymar after the match. Emotions were running high at Maracana stadium on Sunday. The high emotion was a testament to what the result meant for the two football icons of the modern generation.

For Argentina, they won an international title after 28 long years as well. The last time they had won the Copa America way back in 1993.

Messi did not score a goal for a change, yet he edged Neymar to win the Golden Boot. He scored five goals in the tournament and helped with an equal number of assists.

Angel Di Maria scored the lone goal of the match as Brazil tried very hard to get the equalizer but failed against a rock-solid Argentine defence.
