Lionel Mes­si and Argenti­na are advanc­ing to the semi­fi­nals of the 2024 Copa Amer­i­ca after sur­viv­ing a nerve-wrack­ing penal­ty shootout against Ecuador. 

Despite Mes­si miss­ing his spot-kick, Argenti­na pre­vailed 4–3 on penal­ties after the match fin­ished 1–1 in regulation.

The defend­ing cham­pi­ons took the lead in the first half through a head­er from Lisan­dro Mar­tinez, but Ecuador equal­ized late on to force the shootout. 

Argenti­na goal­keep­er Emil­iano Mar­tinez was the hero, sav­ing two penal­ties to see his side through to the semis.

The win means Mes­si and Argenti­na are one step clos­er to adding anoth­er tro­phy to the cap­tain’s dec­o­rat­ed career. 

They will now face the win­ner of Venezuela vs Cana­da in the semi­fi­nals as they con­tin­ue their quest for Copa Amer­i­ca glory.
