Brasília – Argentina’s footballers defeated Colombia 3: 2 on penalties and after five years will play the finals of the South American Championship. After 90 minutes, the match ended 1: 1, when Luis Díaz answered the second half in the second half on the Argentine goal of Lautaro Martínez. Coach Lionel Scaloni’s charges will play for the title with defenders from Brazil on Sunday.

The Argentines, who have been waiting for the first triumph at Copa América since 1993, have not yet lost a single match in the tournament. However, after a clear quarterfinal victory over Ecuador (3: 0), they now had to beat Colombia to penalties.

The hero was the goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez, who caught three opponents. He was overtaken by Juan Caudrado and Miguel Borja. On the other hand, Captain Lionel Messi, Leandro Paredes and Martínez prevailed for Argentina. It wasn’t just Rodrigo De Paul who transformed.

Argentines can thus continue to strive for the 15th title in history and try to break through a series of four final defeats in a row (2004, 2007, 2015, 2016). On the other hand, Colombia did not build on the previous successful penalty shootout from the quarterfinals with Uruguay and will play for third place with Peru
