Messi Rescue Argentina in Copa Draw

Argentina couldn't manage more than a 1-1 draw against Paraguay in the Copa America on Wednesday, staying last in its group and facing an early elimination from the South American competition.

Derlis Gonzalez opened the scoring for Paraguay in the 37th minute at the Mineirao Stadium and Lionel Messi levelled matters from the penalty spot in the 57th.

However, Gonzalez missed a penalty kick shortly after Messi's equaliser, with goalkeeper Franco Armani stopping his shot from the spot.

Colombia lead Group B with six points and are already through to the knockout stage thanks to a late 1-0 win over guest Qatar earlier Wednesday.

Paraguay are second with two points, and Argentina and Qatar have one each.
