SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) The Copa America ended with Chile celebrating a long-awaited triumph and Argentina left wondering how much longer its title drought will last.

It was a disappointing finish for Lionel Messi and his teammates, who haven't won anything in 22 years, and a historic victory for an entire nation that desperately needed some reason to rejoice after getting way too used to a long history of tragedies at home.

After enduring a series of droughts in the south, floods in the norths, an earthquake and two volcanic eruptions this year, the country of 17 million people was celebrating a perfect ending to an emotional tournament.
