Torrey Smith excited to meet Lionel Messi at Copa America

New, comments

The Copa America tournament continued on Monday with Argentina defeating Chile 2-1, and Panama defeating Bolivia 2-1. The Argentina-Chile match took place at Levi's Stadium, but was missing Argentina star Lionel Messi. However, it appears Messi was in attendance for the match. Torrey Smith and several other members of the San Francisco 49ers were on the lookout for Messi, and they eventually found him.

Smith tweeted out some video from inside Levi's Stadium. I am not seeing the picture tweeted out, but he posted it on this Snapchat video. I can't quite make out who else is in the picture.

The tournament picks up again on Tuesday with the United States facing Costa Rica in Chicago, and Colombia facing Paraguay at the Rose Bowl.

Fooch's update: And we have a clear picture of the players with Messi.
