'La Albiceleste' opened their 2019 Copa America campaign with a 2-0 defeat to Colombia.

Second-half goals from Roger Martinez and Duvan Zapata condemned Messi to yet more international misery.

The Barcelona captain was unable to deliver for Argentina, but he did attempt to grab the game by the scuff of the neck.

Case in point: the 60th minute. He received the ball on the half-way line and tried to influence the game by doing everything by himself.

Twitter user @MomoDaGr8 uploaded a short clip from Saturday's game, accompanied with the following caption: "To all the dumbasses blaming Messi, watch him do everything by himself as he keeps getting knocked down while his teammates keep giving him the ball back."

Messi, who downplayed his side's chances before the start of the tournament, offered his thoughts after the defeat to Colombia.

"We leave here feeling bitter. In the second half we had our chances. We didn't want to start this way, obviously, but now we have to lift our heads and keep going.

"In the first half we retreated a little and were holding on, but in the second we really opened up. Whenever you lose it's hard for us, we usually take it badly. Now we have to think about Paraguay."
