Angel di Maria and Marcos Rojo continued their fine form with Argentina and helped them to victory over Paraguay in the Copa America semi-final.
Rojo opened the scoring for Argentina with an instinctive finish inside the six-yard box but it will be Di Maria who walks away with the headlines from a United fans’ point of view.
The 27-year-old scored two goals, thanks in no small part to the astounding Lionel Messi who just keeps on doing what he does best, but it’s absolutely fantastic to see Di Maria seemingly back to his old self.
He also grabbed an assist for Argentina’s fifth goal with a superb cross to Sergio Aguero who made no mistake.
Here are some videos of Rojo and Di Maria’s goals:
Rojo 1-0 Argentina
Di Maria 3-1 Argentina
Di Maria 4-1 Argentina
Aguero 5-1 Argentina (Di Maria cross)
This has been the perfect summer for Di Maria in terms of building up his confidence once again and after an extended break, he should return to United full of vigour.
If the beginning of last season is anything to go by (and his performances in the Copa America), United fans are in for a real treat when Di Maria can get up to full speed in the Premier League.
Rojo and Di Maria will now face off against Chile which is set to be an explosive final.
