Ángel Di María opened the scoring for Argentina against Brazil in the Copa América final with a left-footed goal after a great pass from Rodrigo De Paul. El Fideo received the ball, faced the goalkeeper alone, and poked it from above. It was the 1-0 of the Argentine National Team that triggered a good memory: the goal of Di María himself in the final of the 2008 Olympic Games.
The final was against Nigeria in Beijing and Di María’s goal meant the 1-0 with which Argentina climbed to the top of the podium and won the gold medal. In that team Lionel Messi also played and it was the 10th of the team who assisted Di María, he left him alone in front of the rival area, and then Fideo defined the same as against Brazil: with a subtle touch below the ball so that he travels to the back of the net above the goalkeeper.
13 years passed from that final against Nigeria in which Argentina reached Olympic glory, from the hand of the same scorer who is looking for the feat today at Maracana, against Brazil, and for the Copa América: Ángel Di María.
