Lionel Messi Misses Penalty Kick, Costs Argentina Copa America 2016 Title

The unthinkable happened on Argentina’s first penalty kick attempt in the Copa America 2016 final.

To make matters worse for Argentina, Chile went on to win 4-2 on penalty kicks to win its second straight Copa America title.
