Angel Di Maria on Argentina Copa America win: “We fought so much to achieve this”

44

The hero of the night, Angel Di Maria, the hero of all of Argentina as it was his goal which handed his country their first senior international trophy since the 1993 Copa America.

Di Maria, who wasn’t a regular starter at this Copa America, started and scored the only goal of the match. He who missed the 2014 World Cup final due to injury and was not able to complete both the 2015 and 2016 Copa America finals due to injury, wrote his name in the history books.

Angel Di Maria spoke to the media after Argentina’s Copa America win. Here is what he had to say:

“We dreamed so much, we fought so much to achieve this. Rodrigo gave me a perfect pass. I finished it like in the match vs. Nigeria at the Olympics.”

He also revealed a talk he had with Lionel Messi:

“It’s going to be unforgettable. Messi told me thanks to me and I told him thanks to him. He told me it would be my final, that it would be the revenge for the finals I couldn’t play. It had to be today and it was.”

And in addition, here is who Di Maria dedicated the win to:

“I’m happy for my kids, my wife, my parents, for everyone that backed us and to everyone that came here. A World Cup is coming soon.”

  1. DiMaria won it for us… but anyone who doubted him must go back and read his interview after the WC exit…

    He had been through shit for this jersey… wearing it had been his boon and curse (thanks to ‘fans’) but I. Can guarantee you no one else except LM10 could have scored in the position Dimaria was..he is an asset through and through. He might not be in the WC team but he will take us there comfortably.

  2. Was Tata Martino ejected from the game? hehehhee i saw him sitting in the stands , How funny on this particular day, ARGENTINA WINNING AND Celebrating minutes before Mexico game started hehehe.

    Say it ain’t so joe, MIGHTY BRAZIL failed to score 1 goal vs poor ARGENTINA ?????? In Brazil!!

    HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN…..what did their president say???? Brazil will win 5-zero…….KISS MY ASS

    • Yes we will, now we have gained the momentum and all players will me mentally prepared for the World Cup.
      I hope Scaloni finds a way to equip Dybala in the starting 11 along with Di Maria and Messi.
      With these guys in the forward lineup, we are guaranteed to score a tons of goals.
      Vamos Argentina.

  3. Ok ok OK, you guys are fucking with me right? WE WON??? DID WE REALLY WIN??? ARGENTINA IS THE SOUTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONS, we BEAT BRAZIL in BRAZIL???!!

    I’m high and I never took drugs, I’m drunk and I don’t even drink.

    OMG, WE WON, MESSI WON, WE WON, THANK YOU GOD, THANK YOU to the power infinity, THANK YOU.

    Ladies and Gents, I love all of you, even the most annoying and irritating ones that got on my damn nerves so many damn times.

    I HATE to say this, BUT I TOLD YOU TO STOP BEING SO DAMN NEGATIVE AND THAT THE GAME WAS NOT LOST yet!!!! we won WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS, MESSI GOT HIS TROPHY, FUCK ALL THE HATERS, I’M NOT GONNA SLEEP TONIGHT.

    WE WON WE WON WE WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON

  4. It’s not even been an hour since the triumph and some people are arguing and throwing jabs at each other on the blog! 😂 ,
    Even adversaries and head to head competitors were hugging each other on the field at the end of the match.
    Congratulations! Who cares what ranch1987 and interapache$$ wrote and commented last week. We won.
    If we ever lose in the future then you small dick bitch tendency types can enjoy yourselves again….maybe.
    Vamos Putos ! Salute!!!!!!! Congratulations! We are champions !

  5. BRAZIL, DECIRME QUE SE SIENTE
    PERDER EN CASA CON TU PAPA
    TE JURO QUE AUNCE PASEN LOS AÑOS
    NUNCA NOS VAMOS A OLVIDAR

    QUE DE PAUL LOS ACHICO
    QUE EL FIDEO LOS VACUNO
    QUE ESTAN LLORANDO DESDE TU CASA HASTA HOY

    MESSI LO HICISTE
    LA COPA NOS TRAJISTE
    MARADONA ES MAS GRANDE QUE PELE

    I updated the version 😉

  6. Scaloni’s best game plan i have watched so far; excellent tempo and rythm with great selection from the start. De Paul and Parades successfully covered Neymar and control the mid field and with that passed remind us the passed of Diego to Cladio Cannigia when we won 1-0 against Brazil and repeated the same as Olympic Beijing Games by Messi to Maria against Nigeria..

    Time to celebrate and enjoy; let’s talk and discuss more details in upcoming few days. As Arg fans can’t stop criticizing even when we won the Cup -:)

    Vamos Albiceleste !

    What are you talking about? Why should I be frustrated that Di maria scored.
    He was the best player on the pitch.
    I am a fan of Di maria since his youth days, just because I might have criticized him or any other player doesn‘t mean I hate them.
    When he scored I felt calm like never before because it brought back memories from 2008.
    I also praised him during the match.
    By the way Otamendi was a monster too.
    Be happy and dont hate great players.

  8. does anyone have a video of the entire celebration from the moment of the whistle to when the players left to the locker room? Stupid fox has to start previewing the Mexico game and plugging in as many ads as possible

    • @Olive,
      That is not even Fox’s greatest sin. They started televising the match at the 3rd minute.
      IF you want to ruin something, give it to the Americans.
      I am Kenyan and a great athletics fan (track and field) of course!
      Sometimes when there is a Diamond League meet somewhere in Europe or wherever, hey’l cut off because of baseball/American football or bull riding. …..and their commentating is awful! I enjoy British commentators for both football and athletics……NO AMERICANS and I love the yankees but not on this.

  9. Scaloni reveals his secret weapon Di Maria in the final. He even kept the secret until the very last minute. The media did not know Di Maria would start until about 8 hours before the match. Brazil also did not know our line up. Plus, another huge weapon was revealed: Cristian Romero.

    Brazil on the other hand already decided his starting line up 4 days before the final.

    Scaloni outcoached Tite!

  10. Congratulations my childhood love argentina football team.., 👍👍⚽🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷
