Erik Lamela scores for Argentina in final Copa America group stage match

New, comments

Argentina are rolling through the competition at the 2016 Copa America Centenario. They lead Bolivia 2-0 in the first half of their final Group D match after beating Chile and Panama to begin the tournament.

Tottenham Hotspur winger Erik Lamela has played sparingly in the first two matches, but got the start in this one thanks to yellow card worries and other players being rested. He took no time at all taking advantage of his opportunity by scoring 13 minutes into the match.

This is just Coco's second ever international goal. While it's not the greatest of goals coming off of a wicked deflection, he'll certainly take it. He joins his pal Eric Dier who also scored from a direct free kick in England's first match of Euro 2016.

Spurs have a team full of unexpected set piece specialists. Who knew?
