Lionel Messi, fresh from guiding Barcelona to UEFA Champions League glory, now has his sights firmly set on winning the Copa America with Argentina in his home country.

"I arrive full of happiness," Messi said after touching down from Spain. "I was lucky enough to win everything with Barcelona and on an individual level, and now my goal is to play in and win the Copa America with Argentina."

Messi was instrumental in Barça's 3-1 victory over Manchester United in the Champions League final last week, scoring the second goal as the Catalan giants dominated the English champions at Wembley.

And he will be looking to turn around Argentina's terrible run in the Copa America - which runs from 1-24 July - a tournament they have not won since 1993 in Ecuador.
