No pressure on Argentina going into final: Lionel Messi

EAST RUTHERFORD (United States): Lionel Messi will bid to gild his legacy as the greatest footballer of his generation on Monday by ending Argentina's 23-year wait for a major title in a dream final against holders Chile in the Copa America Centenario.

"We have grown a lot as a team in the past year, and as a result we are stronger," Messi said. "We've been in spectacular form up to now, now it's up to us to do it again. We don't feel any pressure; we're used to playing in finals — unfortunately we haven't won one yet," he added.

Chile had beaten Argentina via penalties in the Copa America final last year.
