Ar­gentina reaches Copa Amer­ica Semi-Fi­nals

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

It took 95 min­utes, 16 shots and 14 penalty kicks, but Ar­gentina fi­nally saw off the ro­bust chal­lenge of Colom­bia to reach the last four of the Copa Amer­ica.

The pre-tour­na­ment favourites dom­i­nated this quar­ter-fi­nal from start to fin­ish but had to rely on the boot of Car­los Tevez to win a dra­matic penalty shoot-out in Vina del Mar.

Lu­cas Biglia and Mar­cos Rojo both had chances to win the match from 12 yards but it was left to sub­sti­tute Tevez, who was cel­e­brat­ing a re­turn to Boca Ju­niors, who kept La Al­bice­leste on course for their fist piece of sil­ver­ware since 1993.
