      La Joya's side set up a semi-final with Brazil after a 2-0 win vs Venezuela, whilst Cuadrado's Colombia are bested on penalties by Chile. Bentancur and Caceres are in action for Uruguay tonight

      It will be a Bianconeri derby in the Copa America semi-finals, as Paulo Dybala's Argentina set up a South American derby against Alex Sandro's Brazil after overcoming Venezuela 2-0 in Rio. 

      La Albiceleste went ahead in the game after 10 minutes of play when Inter's Lautaro Martinez fired home, Argentina made the result safe in the second half through Real Betis' Giovani Lo Celso who netted his side's second 15 minutes from time. Paulo Dybala made a late cameo in the game, coming on as a substitute for Sergio Aguero in the 85th minute. The result means that Argentina will take on Brazil in the semi-finals in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday 2 July. 

      Whilst it was jubilation for Dybala, Juan Cuadrado's Colombia saw their Copa America campaign come to an end after they were knocked out by Chile in their quarter-final in a penalty shootout. The Bianconeri winger played the full game in Sao Paulo with both sides being held to a 0-0 draw after extra-time. It was a close shootout, with Chile winning on the final round of spotkicks after William Tesillo missed and Alexis Sanchez converted to make it 5-4. The Chileans will meet the winner of tonight's quarter-final between Uruguay (with Rodrigo Bentancur and Martin Caceres) and Peru in the other semi-final.
