As Lionel Messi has developed during his career he has become an ever-more prolific provider of assists as well as a lethal goalscorer and he gave another wonderful display of creativity at the Copa America Tuesday.The Argentina forward, who has yet to find the net from open play in five games at the tournament in Chile, set up three goals for his teammates in a 6-1 drubbing of Paraguay that secured a clash against the hosts in Saturday's final.It was the first time Messi made three assists in a single game for his country and only the second time in his career after he achieved the feat playing for Barcelona in a King's Cup match against Levante in January 2014 .The 28-year-old has 31 assists for club and country so far in 2014-15, two short of his record of 33 from 2011-12 .
