I feel sorry for @josevas217, but what a final we can look forward to in Copa America!

Yesterday the last semi-final in Copa America was played between Argentina and Colombia. The match didn't actually evolve the way I expected it to, because Colombia possessed the ball more than Argentina (55%) and both teams had an equal number of shots on goal and so. In other words, it was a quite tight match. To be honest, I expected this to be a match that Argentina would rule quite easily!

Martinez scored the first goal for Argentina in the 7th minute, but the equalizer from Diaz in the 61st minute made sure that the match would go to extra time.

In the penalty shootout, Argentina did a better job, and as a result, they will play the final in Copa America against Brazil on July 10th. To be honest, I am happy about it, because a final in Copa America between Brazil and Argentina is like a dream final. Not because they are always playing fantastic football, but because they are the teams with the biggest profiles and it will be awesome to see them play against one another.

At the same time, I feel very sorry for @josevas217 and everyone in Colombia. They were so close at actually getting to the final, and it feels so bad to be so close, but not get to the final. Of course, they still have the bronze final left against Peru which I believe they could and should win, but that isn't the same as playing a Copa America final against Brazil on July 10th.

At the same time in London - Chiellini is just so cool!! :)

A few hours before the match between Argentina and Colombia in Brazil, Italy won the penalty shootout against Spain in London. It was a quite good match, but to be honest, the highlight of the match for me was watching the Italians sing their anthem at the start of the match, and then seeing Chiellini smile throughout the match, and then see him just joke around with Jordi Alba before the penalty shootout. Unfortunately, Jordi Alba didn't seem to enjoy joking and smiling as much as Chiellini, but at least Chiellini had a great time!

Small update

Now we know that Italy will play against England in the final of the European Championship in football. I believe this will be the best possible final based on what we have seen so far in the tournament. If you want to know more about how you can stream England vs Italy online, check this article.

This is the best possible final for Copa America and the first and probably the only duel we will ever see between Neymar and Messi. None of them have won this trophy and I am sure they will give their best in the final. I am really looking forward to it.

I am really looking forward to it myself. It is sure that Messi will be eager to finally win something with Argentina, but I have a feeling that they will have a big struggle winning against Brazil in Brazil in the final!

Messi will be hurt if he lose this final. He has not had a good record in a while for his National team and he will be happy to have this in his records

I know... Messi for sure would need a win here. I think, somehow, I cheer for Argentina, because of this as well, but to be honest, I just hope it will be an awesome match!

It's a sad loss, but they fought until the end, but that's how soccer is.
The country came to a standstill during the match, literally. But, the reality is that both teams have advanced brilliantly. It will be good to see them play.
Thanks for the mention my friend.

Well, I am happy that they fought well, and that they actually managed to put up a solid fight against Argentina. It is also so interesting to see how soccer is able to unite a nation... everyone forgets about their trouble and political views, and they just cheer for their country in a football tournament... amazing :)
