Argentina Costa Rica, A flooded reborn Argentina Costa Rica 3-0 to reach the quarterfinals of the Copa America in style courtesy of a brace from Sergio Aguero and another Angel Di Maria. Agüero in from the start with Carlos Tevez to the bench in a revamped front line second scored half an hour after the hosts had dominated the opening stages.
With Lionel Messi pulling the strings beautifully behind the front main Atletico Madrid star Aguero made the points safe with a second goal seven minutes after the restart to have your account in the event a tournament of three high.
Di Maria then finished off the Ticos beat the third shortly after the time of the Group A winners Argentina joined Chile, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela in the neighborhoods.
“This was a real tonic – just what we needed,” said Aguero.
“We played very well and has goals – but the main thing was that gelled as a team now have to continue.”
Javier Pastore, a substitute for the libertine late Gonzalo Higuain could have at least doubled the margin agreement.
“It was a very important victory and a good team performance – our attitude in the nail,” he said.
Coach Sergio Batista was under enormous pressure to deliver a victory and safe passage to the next round with the hosts looking for their first major trophy since 1993.
And after his slow start had to change with Tevez and Ezequiel Lavezzi and Higuain bench classic brought as a center forward allowing Messi to focus more on its chain to withdraw from the line of fire immediately.
If Messi in particular is concerned, the plan worked like a dream, as the Barcelona man has participated in almost all movements, to break the defense of Costa Rica in pieces with their incisors and passes in and out.
Argentina forward line is renewed siege Leonel Moreira goal from the beginning, with Higuain of Real Madrid, firing a snap shot and width of the turn before Messi after hitting the wood with a free kick, took a little longer.
Agüero then drilled a low effort just past the traffic as an ongoing basis before Messi went on a run down the right flank, only for Aguero to take off target after passing through.

Fernando Gago launched a drive goalwards Moreira and Agüero could not holdback, monitoring, dinka the ball.
The second half continued in the same line and went 2-0 in 53 minutes, another wealthy Messi Aguero clean finish.
Higuain had an effort ruled out for offside, then you should have had a penalty when he appeared to carried out inside the box and shot over again after another pass from Messi, who was carved out of Costa Rica defense almost at will.
And it was again Messi, who created the fatal blow, slipping a perfectly weighted pass through Di Maria to fly home with his left foot for a 3-0 lead without disrupting the march.
A 54,000 crowd – including the 1978 World Cup hero Mario Kempes, visit a stadium that bears his name – Messi gave him a standing ovation at the end as the man on the boat and the team renewed his covenant with the fans delirious.
