Lionel Messi finally got his hands on an international trophy as Argentina overcame Brazil in the Copa America final on Sunday night at the Maracana stadium in Rio.

Angel Di Maria came up with a sublime chip over Ederson to hand Argentina the lead in the 22nd minute of the game.

Brazil tried to make something happen with Neymar leading the way, but in the end, Argentina held them off to finally win the Copa America and end Messi's long wait for an international trophy.

As expected, fans on Twitter, especially Messi fans went absolutely berserk after Argentina's win. Here are some of the best reactions:

Angel Di Maria just made his second start in the Copa America and he instantly justified his selection by scoring the opener in the first half of the final.

Renan Lodi failed to defend a long ball by Rodrigo De Paul as Di Maria went ahead and lobbed the ball over Ederson's head with immense composure.

Brazil gave their 100% for the rest of the game but Argentina's defence were at their best on the night.

Messi and Neymar were elected joint best players of the Copa America 2021 with four goals each, however the Argentine had a uncharacteristically quiet final.

Argentina are now on 15 Copa America titles, level with Uruguay who were the all-time leading winners of this prestigious title.
