Colombia face Argentina, Chile meet Uruguay in Copa quarters

Temuco (Chile), June 22 (IANS) Colombia will take on Argentina in a Copa America football tournament quarter-final after squeezing through to the knockout stages.

They will now face Argentina in Vina del Mar on June 26, with the winner moving on to the last four.

Brazil’s reward for topping their group is a game against Paraguay on June 28 in Concepcion.

The next round begins with hosts Chile facing reigning champions Uruguay on June 24 in Santiago, followed the next day by Bolivia’s clash with Peru in Temuco.
