Copa America 2024: Messi Misses Penalty As Argentina Advance To Semi-finals

Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, missed the first kick of a penalty shoot-out as they beat Ecuador in the 2024 Copa America quarter-final on Thursday night.

The game ended 1-1 after 120 minutes.

Lisandro Martinez had opened the scoring for Albiceleste in the first half, before Kevin Rodriguez equalized in stoppage time.

Messi hit the bar with a failed panenka attempt and was consoled by the Ecuadorian goalkeeper, Alexander Dominguez, in what was a shocking start to the shootout.
