The U.S. Men’s National Team fell in a big hole in the semifinals thanks to a gorgeous free kick from Lionel Messi.
A little more than 30 minutes into the match, Lionel Messi drew a hard foul in the open field by Chris Wondolowski, a foul that earned Wondolowski a yellow card.
Messi took advantage of the free kick, placing it perfectly into the upper-right corner for a 2-0 lead.
Brad Guzan never had a chance.
Argentina would add two more goals and the U.S. never even got a shot on goal, losing 4-0.
Here is the replay.
Argentina won 4-0 and will face either Colombia or Chile in the final.
