Argentina will face Brazil in the Copa America final after it beat Colombia 3-2 in a shootout on Tuesday following a 1-1 draw in their semi-final in Brasilia.

Goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez saved from Colombia’s Davinson Sanchez, Yerry Mina and Edwin Cardona while Lionel Messi, Leandro Paredes and Lautaro Martinez all scored from the spot to put Argentina through to the title decider.

Argentina had taken the lead after six minutes through Martinez but Luis Diaz equalised for Colombia after the hour.

Argentina will face host Brazil in Saturday’s final at the Maracana after the reigning champion beat Peru 1-0 in Monday’s first semi-final.
