USA off to nightmare start, Argentina scores in 3rd minute

It's hard to envision a scenario any worse than the one that greeted the United States to start their Copa America semifinal against Argentina. Less than three minutes into the match, Argentina grabbed a 1-0 lead when Leo Messi fed Ezequiel Lavezzi with a beautiful lob pass. Lavezzi was inexplicably unmarked and Brad Guzan got stuck in no-man's land. The looping header easily found the back of the net.
