Salvador: Roger Martinez and Duvan Zapata put a dent in Lionel Messi's hopes of finally landing a major international title as Colombia began their Copa America campaign with a 2-0 win over Argentina on Saturday.
Martinez struck a stunning opener on 72 minutes and fellow substitute Zapata sealed the win three minutes from the end after Argentina had dominated the second half of this Group B encounter in Salvador.
It had been 20 years since Colombia last beat Argentina at the Copa America.
"We knew it had been many years, I'm delighted but the Copa isn't finished," said Zapata. "We're going to enjoy this win."
