Argentina captain Lionel Messi was at his brutal best on Wednesday as 14-time Copa America champions survived a penalty shoot-out against Colombia. The win helped the Albiceleste set up a final date with bitter rivals Brazil. (More Football News)

As expected Messi was the target in Brasilia. Colombia needed to mark the talisman from Rosario, and they did so in the old fashion way, effectively. But Argentina had the last laugh, winning the shoot-out 3-2.

The 34-year-old was hounded the entire match, and while still bleeding, Messi made some stunning runs at Mane Garrincha Stadium, including these:

Don't miss the commentary: "They have two or three nibbles... before someone finally took a big chunk out of Lionel Messi."

Lautaro Martinez opened the scoring in the 7th minute from a Messi set-up. But Luis Diaz equalised in the 61st minute. 

Messi, now a free agent after the end of his Barcelona contract, has five assists and four goals in the Copa America 2021.
