Copa America Day 9

Only two goals scored last night as the Copa America group stages came to a close.

Argentina maintained their 100% record by defeating Paraguay 1-0 thanks to a second half strike from subsitute Javier Mascherano. The win leaves the Argentines facing Peru in the quarter finals, with Paraguay to play Mexico.

Colombia compounded further misery on the USA's Copa America campaign after a Jaime Castrillon strike gave them a 1-0 victory over the Americans. Plane journeys home now await both sides.

The quarter finals stage kicks off on Saturday as Venezuela play Uruguay and Chile face off against Brazil.
