Despite a goal from the half and a penalty shootout: Canada in the semifinals of the cup


The Argentine national team qualified for the semi-finals of the Copa America only at the end of a huge drama that included a penalty shootout, and tonight (between Friday and Saturday) there was also drama in the games – in the end it was determined that the world champions will face Canada when they are two wins away from defending their title on the continent.

Venezuela and Canada met tonight in Texas and the opening was for the Canadians, who took the lead after 13 minutes from a goal by Jacob Shappelburg. Salomon Rondon, Venezuela’s biggest star, stunned the stadium crowd in the 64th minute when he almost scored from half time after spotting goalkeeper Maxime Carpo far outside his goal and continued his remarkable record of scoring or assisting in each of the tournament’s matches.

Unfortunately for Rondon and the Venezuelans, a duel came from the penalty spot and after two consecutive misses were recorded in two cases, one by each team, Williker Angel failed to score Canada’s sixth penalty, Ismael Kuna scored and advanced Canada to another meeting with the world champion – we will remind you that the opening game of Copa America 2024 was on 21.6 and then Argentina beat Canada 0:2 with goals from Julián Albers and Otro Martinez. How will it end on the night between Tuesday and Wednesday in the semi-finals?
