Chile beat Colombia to enter Copa America final

The reigning champions came into the game on a high after beating Mexico 7-0 and took only six minutes to make their mark again.

"Winning would certainly be the best gift we could give, not only for me [in reference to turning 29 on Friday] but the whole group".

Because of this synchronicity, I've spent a while waiting for the moment they would contest a high-end match of importance against each other, testing out each other's foibles.

The U.S. outshot Colombia 10-9 and had 49 percent possession.

"Leonardo Messi, Argentina stand in way of historic run by US soccer at Copa America", reads the tweet published Monday afternoon.

Now with the loss, Colombia is slated to face the United States in the third place game in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday.

The stadium was hit by a severe storm during the half-time break and the start of the second half was delayed for over two hours due to the threat of lightning. In addition to last year's agonising Copa America final defeat, Messi was part of the Argentina team that lost to Germany in extra time in the 2014 FIFA World Cup final.

The company's association with Messi is the first time ever that Tata Motor's passenger vehicle business undertook an overall brand association campaign with a brand ambassador. "I thought that was good". Chile scored both goals within the first 11 minutes and was able to hold on despite allowing 16 shot attempts and controlling the ball for just half the match.

Last fall the USA was shut out by Trinidad and Tobago, and in March it was blanked by Guatemala in World Cup qualifiers.

"When I watch certain games right now at the Euros, I don't think that way".

"We have grown a lot as a team in the past year, and as a result we are stronger", Messi said. Soto says he went to the match with a plan - one he told everyone except his father. "He's had many more positive performances than not-so-good performances".

Matt Besler was in central defense instead of Brooks, who was bothered by knee inflammation, and Orozco was at left back because Fabian Johnson has a sore groin.

Notes: U.S. midfielders Jermaine Jones and Alejandro Bedoya and forward Bobby Wood will be back after serving one-game suspensions. In a much-contested ball in Colombia's area, a center managed to reach the left pole, but Mr. Cuadrado was there to solve the situation. Arias made a run to get by Bedoya, and Rodriguez lofted a pass to Arias, who jumped at the edge of the 6-yard box and headed the ball on a bounce across Howard's goal to Bacca. The forward slid ahead of Yedlin to nudge the ball in for his 13th worldwide goal, his second of the tournament.

Argentina played much more cohesively as a unit, taking out US defenders with screens on the edge of the box, making lightning-quick transitions and running elaborate plays to shed defenders and create space deep in the offensive edge.

With Arsenal stopper David Ospina beaten, the Universidad Catolica full back scored one of the easiest goals of his career by sidefooting into the empty net.
