Argentina will face Colombia in the Copa America 2021 semi-final on July 7. In the summit match, the victor of the match will face Brazil.
Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, has been one of the top teams at the Copa America 2021. The Barcelona great has been the tournament’s best player, and all of the Albiceleste’s opponents have struggled to stop him thus far. Argentina defeated Ecuador 3-0 in the quarterfinals, and he played a key role once again.
Colombia, on the other hand, advanced to the semi-finals after defeating Uruguay on penalties. They are missing talismanic forward James Rodriguez, who was controversially left out of his country’s Copa America squad for 2021.
We take a look at the five important clashes between Argentina and Colombia that could determine the outcome of the game.
Papu Gomez vs. #5 Daniel Munoz (Chile) (Argentina)
In the Copa America 2021 semi-final, it will be interesting to watch who plays on the left wing for Argentina. So far in the event, Nicolas Gonzalez, Angel di Maria, and Papu Gomez have all played there.
However, Gomez’s participation appears to be the most plausible. In the group stage, the Sevilla striker scored the game’s only goal against Paraguay before scoring the game’s first goal against Bolivia. Gomez is a deft player who can play anywhere along the offensive line and is known for his passing and creativity.
