Lautaro Martinez and Giovani Lo Celso scored one each as Argentina outdid Colombia 2-0 in the Copa America quarter-finals. The two-time World Cup winners will now face the hosts Brazil in the semi-finals of the biggest pride of South America. Neymar-less Brazil beat Paraguay on penalties and can see a hard-hitting challenge from Messi’s army.
Argentina reached the final of the Copa America in the previous two editions but lost the race to Chile. The five-time World Cup winners Brazil, despite having quality players everywhere on the pitch, are facing a huge problem of making the home fans believe that they can land the title this time around.
The same is the case with Messi’s side, who need to win the coming two matches for having their say in a perfect manner in the international market.
