Partidazo: Argentina 4-0 Peru, Copa América 2007

On 8 July 2007 Argentina and Peru met in the quarter final of Copa América 2007. Argentina had won all three of their games in the group stage but Peru kept them at bay in the first half.

The second half was a different story with Messi, Riquelme and Tévez combining to devastating effect, even the normally goalshy Javier Mascherano bagged himself one in the 4-0 win.

Argentina progressed to the final having won every game in convincing style with 16 goals over their 5 games. The Brazilians on the other hand were beaten by Mexico in the group stage and only just scraped past Uruguay in the semi finals with a win on penalties. However Argentina imploded in the final losing 3-0.
