The Hard Rock will be rockin' this weekend as Inter Miami's Lionel Messi is looking for a Copa América repeat.

Messi and Argentina defeated Canada 2-0 in New Jersey, to qualify for the 2024 Copa América final.

Messi scored his first goal in this edition, his 14th career goal and gave props to the team veterans.

"What this team has done, what the Argentina national team has done, because after this everyone gives more importance to all the finals that me and the 'older guys' have played. Me, Fide [Angel Di María], Ota [Nicolás Otamendi], and that Argentina can play another final is amazing.

"To be honest it has been a difficult tournament, the level has been as equal as ever, very bad field, high temperatures that make it hard to play, very tough rivals. So the fact we made it and we are here again playing a final is something to enjoy and highlight."

Argentina now heads to Miami to play the Copa América final at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday night against Uruguay or Colombia.

Champions in 2021, Argentina will seek a repeat championship on July 14.
