The scoreline greatly flattered Argentina. Some diabolical finishing, Messi included with that balloon shot over the bar. That was the first time i have seen Qatar play and was pleasantly surprised, they are not too bad but can't finish. Dybala wasn't so bad off the bench.

Colombia top the group with a perfect 9/9 yet have to face Uruguay or Chile!
Argentina are through to face Venezuela in the Maracana. Venezuela humiliated them last time, so need to up their game now.

Guys in my opinion Argentina's problem is the coaches they hire.
Such a mess, even their performance in this copa is worse than last year at the world cup. I feel like the manager is selecting the starting 11 and nothing more. There are no any tactics or an idea they are just passing to messi. Honestly messi doesnt deserve this
They have probably had one decent manager in the past 5, Sabella was good and Maradona was garbage. Fantastic player awful manager. You would have thought that he would have understood better than most at how an exceptional player needs a team building around him.
Messi could've picked to play for Spain....

although i have a feeling that Argentina will win qatar and the Copa. I just have a feeling , lets see!
Very wishful thinking ....

The managers are the main problem in my view. The whole play of Argentina depends on Messi, as it is constructed about this special player. Thus the entire team is so predictable for the opponents: eliminate Messi and Argentina is disturbed in playing forward. One man cannot win a tournament anylonger, as Maradona did it in 1986. It is not a team for years. But the managers didn't relize and still think he alone can do miracles. That is wrong, just wrong! even Barcelona would not be the best team in Spain, if everything is just around and works with him.

Brazil is the best team at the moment in South America, Uruguay the second best.
See above Re: managers.

I agree that you need a team around a top player. Even Maradona, in '86 had Brown, Valdano and Burruchuga score in the final.
Brazil are a top team and are on home soil so have to be favourites. Uruguay are a dangerous side and Colombia are decent too.

In my opinion, i dont think brazil is that good. They didnt really play a top team and they drew 0-0 with Venezuela.
I guess the best team would be Uruguay as they have a very good defence and all the players have been playing together since a very long time.
although i still think messi will win this one

I hope so, but the chances are slim. Argentina needs 3 wins in a row

Brazil to go through although have a sneaky feeling for Paraguay
Argentina should go through but depends if they turn up. Venezuela are dangerous from set pieces and they won 3-1 last time they met
Colombia to edge it IMO but Chile wont give up a title defence easily
Uruguay should have too much for Peru .

Well they had 3 goals ruled out, I'd have to say a couple of the decisions were fairly dubious (camera angle dependent).

What can you say? Brazil will win this for sure.

3 of the four quarters ending 0-0 and Brazil, Chile and Peru qualifying.
Argentina winning in normal time 2-0 (shock horror)!

Feels harsh on Uruguay and Colombia, both unbeaten in this tournament in 90 mins and find themselves out.
Chile and Peru both scoring 5/5 in the shootout- Chile's pens were exceptional.
The race of topscorer is still open with lots of players on 2 goals as top scorers.

SFs:
Arg v Brazil
Chile v Peru

I think we could have a repeat of the previous two finals. Arg v Chile.

There is absolutely no chance that Argentina will win and progress to the final, at all.

I will be happily proven wrong.

They have to make the final first. Brazil are a quality side and with the home crowd pushing them forward, they will be a tough side to beat.

Icecream1 three of four quarter finals ended up in a goalless draw. what is the matter with the teams? all the semi-finalist gave me the impression of being average teams. Or am I wrong? I did not lose the feeling that even the best teams in South American football as a rule, Brazil and Argentina, have lost the touch to world class in the past years.

I have to agree with you that they have been average. There have been few top performances. The top goalscorer in the tournament is about 6/7 players on 2 goals! Nobody has stood out.

Argentina and Brazil are in flux at the minute and seem to have lost their identities. Unfortunately. their respective FAs are run by corrupt inept individuals and need a complete overhaul. Just watching the European U21 finals and the Spain players look fantastic. Some them would get into any of the sides in the Copa America.

Yeah, I have heard of the corruption in the FAs and if that goes on in that way, no South American team will win a world cup again for the next decades. Individual class of the players is pointless, if they can't be formed to a team.

Who would have thought that Uruguay bottled it on penalties against Peru? Peru! the team which lost 0-5 against the host in group stage!! if Peru wins the Copa, I swear, I begin to learn Spanish! and if this really comes true, you can quote me here!
