Athletistic / Football. On the night of July 7, the quarter-finals of the 2024 America’s Cup took place between the national teams of Colombia and Panama. The match ended with a crushing victory for the Colombians with a score of 5:0.

Colombian midfielder James Rodriguez scored three assists in the meeting with the Panamanians – he scored the ball and scored two assists. This allowed the 32-year-old Colombian to repeat the record of the legendary Argentine Lionel Messi.

James now has 5 assists in this year’s Copa America. Previously, only Brazilians Denilson (1997) and Alex (2004) and Lionel Messi (2021) managed to do so in a single tournament.

In the semi-finals of the Copa America 2024, Colombia will face Uruguay and Argentina will face Canada.
