NNA - Argentina captain Lionel Messi said "it could be crazy" if the squad doesn't advance from the Copa America group stage following their 1-1 draw against Paraguay on Wednesday night.

Messi scored from the penalty spot to salvage the draw for Argentina at the Minerao stadium in Belo Horizonte, cancelling out a first-half strike from Paraguay's Richard Sanchez.

"Frankly, it's a little frustrating not being able to get the win we need to take the next step," Messi said after the match. "We knew this would be difficult, we're still looking for the best group, for the best performance, to keep growing."—ESPN
