Carlos Tevez scores Argentina’s winning penalty past Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina

Carlos Tevez scored the winning spot-kick as Argentina beat Colombia 5-4 on penalties to reach the Copa America semi-finals.

Argentina dominated throughout but found Arsenal keeper David Ospina in fine form as he denied Sergio Aguero, Lionel Messi and Nicolas Otamendi.

That meant penalties were needed and, after Colombia’s Jeison Murillo missed, Tevez converted to seal the victory.

Argentina face either Brazil or Paraguay in Tuesday’s semi-final.

It capped a memorable day for Tevez, who came off the bench to score moments after a move from Juventus to his hometown club Boca Juniors was confirmed.
