Super-subs Roger Martínez and Duvan Zapata scored the goals that gave Colombia the perfect start to their Copa America campaign, ​with a 2-0 win over Argentina. It was a bitterly disappointing performance from Lionel Scaloni's side who will need to bounce back quickly against Paraguay to keep their aspirations of making it out of Group B alive.


In a drab first half, Colombia had to make an early change when striker Luis Muriel picked up an injury. His replacement Roger Martínez had the first real chance of the game, but his effort was blocked by the Argentine defence.


After the break, Argentina came out with more intent as Lionel Messi grew into the game. After soaking up plenty of pressure, Colombia took the lead against the run of play with fewer than 20 minutes remaining. Real Madrid misfit James Rodriguez played a sublime pass to Martínez who cut inside from the left and smashed the ball home from the edge of the box. It was a goal that finally lit up a game in need of excitement.


Falling behind killed Argentina's momentum and five minutes from time Colombia put the game to bed. Martínez released Bournemouth's Jefferson Lerma down the left and his driving ball into the box was fired into the roof of the net by Atalanta sensation Duvan Zapata to give his country a 2-0 lead.


Messi was once again the centre of attention of social media after this loss. Here's how fans on Twitter reacted to this loss:
