The second semi-final in the Copa América saw Paraguay absolutely trounced 6-1 by Argentina, who will face Chile in the final.

Argentina were almost as rampant in the quarter-final but came up against David Ospina, who was in top form on the night.

As a result Colombian outlet Pulzo led simply with the line “Paraguay had no Ospina” for their match report.

The Colombian media are currently fascinated with Ospina’s future, wondering where the national number one may end up next season.


Paraguay didn’t ever look like keeping Argentina out. Manchester United’s Angel di Maria finally had a night ton enjoy with two goals to his name, the unstoppable Lionel Messi assisted three in the rout. Host nation Chile will have to be at the very top of their game to win their first ever Copa América.

Now it’s known who Alexis Sánchez and his Chile teammates will face, but the Arsenal star has come under some criticism ahead of the final.

After a long season at Emirates Stadium – which came straight off the back of a World Cup – the Chilean star is struggling and he needs to step up for his country to have any chance of having success this summer.
