However, Argentina, as expected, proved to be too much to handle for Canada, as Julian Alvarez and Lionel Messi both scored in a 2-0 win to advance to the tournament final.

After the game, Argentina's English account posted a photo on the social media platform X with the caption "Not like us, not with us" in reference to Kendrick Lamar's viral diss track against Drake titled "Not Like Us."

Lamar's song was released on May 4 and has been streamed 470 million times and counting on Spotify. The music video on YouTube, which was released on July 4, has 42 million views and counting.

Argentina is seeking its 16th Copa America title when it plays in the final on Sunday, July 14.

La Albiceleste will play either Colombia or Uruguay for the trophy, the latter of which is also pursuing its 16th triumph in the tournament.

The USMNT's hopes to advance were spoiled as they were knocked out of the Copa America tournament following a 1-0 defeat against Uruguay.
