Argentina 1 - 1 Paraguay - Match Report & Highlights

Argentina's Sergio Aguero left talks with teammate Lionel Messi during a practice session of the national soccer team in Belo Horizonte Brazil Tuesday

Felix Sanchez says Qatar are not at the Copa America to take selfies with Lionel Messi as the tournament guests look to stun Argentina and qualify for the quarter-finals.

Already-qualified Colombia beat Paraguay 1-0 in the other Group B match to secure a place in the last eight for both Peru, who finished third in Group A, and Uruguay, now second in Group C. The top two in each group and the two best to finish third advance.

A member of Jorge Sampaoli's back-room staff, Scaloni was an uninspiring choice to become Argentina's next coach when Sampaoli was sacked after the chaotic 2018 World Cup and his inexperience is showing at his first major tournament.

- Argentina have won each of their last seven meetings in the Copa America with non-CONMEBOL nations, with their last defeat in such games coming in 2004 against Mexico.

"There was pressure, we had to win to progress and we're happy".

The forward admitted he could have continued if Scaloni had not replaced him with Angel Di Maria.

A lacklustre opening saw both sides struggle to generate any sort of attacking momentum, with neither side managing to get a shot on goal until Paraguay striker Derlis Gonzalez's effort was deflected behind for a corner in the 29th minute.

Aside from saying that the security issue is being actively exploited, Mozilla is now being (understandably) sparing with details. Philip Martin explained on Twitter that the security team "walked back" the entire attack and reported the zero-day to Firefox.

Argentina leveled from the spot on 57 minutes after VAR adjudged that Ivan Piris had handled in the box, despite no players appealing for the infringement.

Notably, Argentina are at the bottom of the group with only one point, behind Colombia (six), Paraguay (two) and even Qatar (one, but have scored more goals).

Colombia was the better team in the first half, with Roger Martinez having a goal ruled out for offside after just five minutes and Rodriguez putting a free header wide eight minutes later.

Sanchez's team on Sunday has the chance to upset Lionel Messi's Argentina, which has only one point from two games.

"We had a very clear plan but couldn't execute it as we kept losing the ball".

Next up for Argentina, who finished second behind Colombia in Group C, is a quarterfinal match against Venezuela on June 28 at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro.
