WATCH: Erik Lamela scores third career goal for Argentina

New, comments

Erik Lamela has his second goal of the 2016 Copa America Centenario and his third ever for Argentina. The Tottenham Hotspur man subbed on in the second half of their rout over Venezuela in the quarterfinals of the tournament and didn't waste any time finding the back of the net.

After receiving a pass from Lionel Messi, Lamela struck a shot on goal with his right foot. We'd love to say it was a wondergoal of epic proportions, but in reality it was a weak squibber that the goalkeeper should've saved. However, as the old saying goes, they don't ask how just how many? And well, that's three in Coco's international career.

The goal made it 4-1 on the night as the No. 1 ranked team in the world are rolling into the semifinals where they'll face the host nation United States in what should be a very entertaining match on Tuesday night. Perhaps we'll even get a little bit of Lamela vs. DeAndre Yedlin action...
