Angel di Maria dazzles for Argentina against Jamaica in Copa America

by Sam Peoples

Angel di Maria was named Man of the Match after a fantastic individual performance for Argentina in their 1-0 win over Jamaica.

The Manchester United winger did everything but get on the score sheet in a performance which will have delighted United fans to see.

Di Maria’s fierce pace caused huge problems for Jamaica’s defence and having crashed one shot off the crossbar and had another cleared off the line, the 27-year-old can feel hard done by to have not scored for Argentina.

After what was a poor end to the season for Di Maria which was followed by injury problems, it was the sort of electric performance which he put in at the start of last season just after he had signed for the club.

When in full sprint with the ball at his feet, there are very few players in the world who are better than Di Maria and that makes him such a dangerous opponent.



However, that confidence hasn’t been seen for a long time but games like this are the perfect tonight for him. Jamaica wasn’t the toughest opposition but Di Maria will still take plenty of confidence from it and take it forward.

Next year is a big season for Di Maria at Old Trafford. He’ll be more settled having been at the club for a year and the dreamy thought of Depay and Di Maria tearing down the wings for United is already getting fans excited.
