94'
FT: Argentina 0-2 Colombia. The super subs have done it for Colombia... And how, some superb goals for the Colombians. For Argentina, they have to look at the next games and make sure they qualify.
93'
Yellow card for Jefferson Lerma.
90'
4 minutes of stoppage time here.
85'
GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLL!!!! Another beauty!!! A great ball in and Substitute Duvan Zapata taps in from less than 6 yards with an excellent finish and Argentina once again are heading for defeat.
77'
Argentina struggling to come up with any sort of come back at the moment... And once again Leo Messi looks fed up in an Argentina shirt...
71'
GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL! Martinez gives Colombia a huge lead in the competition and what a goal that is! Just as Argentina started to look dangerous, and he hits it into the right hand corner, that is superb.
67'
Guido Rodriguez comes off for Guido Pizarro.
65'
THAT'S THE CHANCE OF THE MATCH!! Messi misses a great headed chance and somehow it's still 0-0.
64'
Cuadrado is then taken off, and is replaced by Jefferson Lerma.
60'
Another yellow card here and it all kicked off a bit there... Messi is fouled by Juan Cuadrado and Giovani Lo Celso immediately comes rushing in before several other players for both sides come and join...
55'
That was almost it... Finally a moment of magic from Messi tonight going through the legs of Davinson Sanchez but in the end he is stopped, Leandro Paredes is booked in the process for dissent.
52'
Renzo Saravia is booked for a late challenge.
50'
Everytime the Argentines get on the ball they receive quite a fair bit of booing, not sure its particularly bothering them, but having said that they've yet to reach the sort of levels we'd expect of them.
46'
CLOSE! That's as close as we've come so far this game, with Leandro Paredes having a long range effort drift narrowly wide.
46'
Second half kick off!
45'
Here come the two sides for the second half... Not been Messi's game so far, not really been anyone's game to be honest, hopefully we see a much better second half...
45'
HT: Argentina 0-0 Colombia. That's the third consecutive match of this competition that has been 0-0 at the break... Hopefully we a second half more like last night rather than the one from earlier today. So far this has been far from a thriller...
45'
3 minutes of added time.
42'
Guido Rodriguez is booked for a poor challenge on Juan Cuadrado.
40'
Colombia looking good here towards the back end of the first half with Falcao almost slotting home, but the chance is blocked.
38'
James puts in a free kick but the header goes nowhere near the goal and it remains 0-0
34'
Neither side really pressing each other, it's far too comfortable for both sides on the balll
30'
OOOH, Argentina almost put themselves under pressure there... James Rodriguez nearly profitting from it but Otamendi comes to save the day.
25'
Argentina have had a lot of ball, but to be honest they've had most of it in their own half... Colombia not bothered one bit...
21'
Falcao is booked for an elbow.
20'
In terms of actual chances, the opening 20 minutes has not offered an awful lot, with both sides being defensively well organised.
14'
Martinez comes on for Luis Muriel, what a shame for the Fiorentina man, who has had such a great season, he looks like he may be in some trouble...
9'
Sergio Aguero is almost played in their after an error by David Ospina...
4'
Messi earns Argentina a corner, and Yerry Mina heads it out for another corner.
4'
Colombia looking very well organised defensively, which you feel with the Argentine attack they will need to be...
1'
Kick off!
Prev.
The stadium is absolutely popping off tonight in an incredible atmosphere here, the World Cup was disappointing last season for both of these sides, and they will be hoping that they are defending their crown when they joint host the competition next year.
Prev.
The anthems are being sung, starting with Colombia.
Prev.
So then kick off is appraching us here, the anticipation is clear, two South American heavyweights about to come together in the biggest game in the competition so far.
Prev.
For Colombia, Duvan Zapata is the big call, with Radamel Falcao kept for his experience for the Colombians tonight.
Prev.
So then for Argentina the obvious big call is that of leaving Paulo Dybala out of the starting line up, with the Attacker struggling to get into any team at the moment.
Prev.
And here is Colombia's team: Ospina; Stefan, Mina, Sanchez, Tesilo; Cuadrado, Barrios, Uribe; James, Falcao, Muriel.
Prev.
So then we have our first lineup. Argentina's team is out and is as follows: Armani; Saravia, Pezzella, Otamendi, Tagliafico; Lo Celso, Rodriguez, Paredes; Messi, Aguero, Di Maria.
Prev.
We shall analyse the teams very shortly, with both sides looking to get off to the best possible start in their opening game of the tournament.
Prev.
Hello and welcome to this Copa America clash between Argentina and Colombia.
