Speaking after the win, Di Maria said that Argentina had to work harder in Messi’s absence, putting in a collective effort.

“We played a good game. We knew that the altitude was going to cost us, despite this and the problems when we arrived; we pulled this off, we were missing the best (player) in the world; we were without the coach, and this is for them,” said Di Maria.

“When (Messi) is here, everything is easier; he wasn’t there, and we had to divide the force, and everything is for our companions who could not be. We are happy,” continued Di Maria.

The reigning Copa America winners have already qualified for the quadrennial tournament later this year.
