Messi leads Argentina 3-0 win against Ecuador


Lionel Messi scored a free-kick and set up two goals to inspire Argentina to a 3-0 win over Ecuador and set up a Copa America semi-final against Colombia.

The 34-year-old forward provided assists for Rodrigo de Paul after 41 minutes and Lautaro Martinez late on.

He then curled in a free-kick in injury time after Piero Hincapie was sent off for a foul on Angel di Maria.

Last-four opponents Colombia beat Uruguay 4-2 on penalties following a goalless draw.
