Team news: The struggles in the Colombia front line continued on in the quarter-final, as they again failed to find the net despite plenty of depth in attack. They started with Atalanta duo Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata, but Miguel Borja could come in after another disappointing performance from Muriel. Davinson Sanchez and Yerry Mina should continue their established pairing at the heart of the back four, shielding experienced goalkeeper David Ospina who has arguably been the nation’s standout player at the tournament. Argentina will be led by talismanic forward Lionel Messi, who has hit four goals and four assists in five Copa America appearances this year amidst the expiration of his Barcelona contract. They boast an abundance of attacking options, with Lautaro Martinez, Nicolas Gonzalez, Angel Di Maria, and Angel Correa all battling for spots in the front line. Meanwhile, new Barcelona forward Sergio Aguero will also hope to lead the line, having started the final two group games after moving to Catalonia from Manchester City in the summer. Experienced centre-back Nicolas Otamendi will continue to lead the back line, while German Pezzella should keep his place alongside the Benfica man after an impressive showing in the 3-0 win over Ecuador.
