It will be Argentina-USA for a spot in the Copa America finals. On Saturday, Argentina beat Venezuela 4-1 to advance from the quarterfinals, with Lionel Messi scoring once and bagging two assists. It was a convincing win for the cup favorites despite some defensive issues.

Argentina took a 3-0 lead, which saw Messi grab an assist on the first goal and make history on the third. Venezuela scored its first goal in the second half and Argentina responded just minutes later to put the game away via Erik Lamela.

With the win, Argentina is once again into the semifinals of the competition, which they actually haven't won since 1993. Argentina fell in the Copa America final in 2015 against Chile.

The U.S. and Argentina will play on Tuesday. The Americans beat Ecuador in the quarterfinals on Thursday.
