Sergio reached the 40-goal mark for the national team with an angled drive goal on Qatar, securing Argentina a place in the last eight of Copa America and solidifying his position as the third most prolific scorer of the Albiceleste's history. It also marked Kun's 8th goal in 17 Copa America matches - and it also ranked him as the 3rd top goalscorer of Argentina that have scored in 4 different international tournaments, behind Diego Simeone and Leo Messi. After the match, Kun was approached by reporters. He took this opportunity to display his joy for attaining this new record and great pride for his achievement, by stating, "It's lovely to score for the national team, of course, and seeing your name among the top scorers ever is a source of pride. I am very happy - and very thankful to my team-mates. If I was able to net those goals, it's because of their effort too."
