Alisson Becker proved he is a quick learner with brilliant save from sublime Messi free-kick (VIDEO)

Brazil cruised into the Copa America final last night thanks to a 2-0 win over fierce rivals, Argentina.

The Selecao were simply too strong on the night as Lionel Messi’s Argentina went crashing out of yet another international tournament.

Messi’s side were not without their chances though, but in the end, they couldn’t find a way past the imperious Alisson Becker, who was once again in fine form.


The Liverpool stopper once again proved why he is considered one of the best ’keepers in the world as he eased to his ninth consecutive clean-sheet in all competitions.

In fact, one of the last players to beat Alisson was Messi, whose sublime curling free-kick at the Camp Nou looked to have well and truly finished Liverpool off in the Champions League.

He edged out Manchester City stopper Ederson with 21 clean sheets in the Premier League, shared the spoils with Marc Andre Ter Stegen in Europe and will claim the Copa America award when the tournament reaches its climax.

If he can add the Copa America title to his already burgeoning trophy cabinet, it would be fair to say that Alisson will have had the best season of his life.
