Argentina and Chile will compete to decide who finishes third at the Copa America

Juan Foyth's hopes of leading Argentina to the final of the Copa America ended this week, but he has one more match to take part in.

The Spurs centre back, who has played at right-back for his country, helped them to a 2-0 win over Venezuela in the quarter-finals.

It set up a last-four fixture with Brazil and the hosts' of the tournament triumphed by a 2-0 score.

Foyth completed the whole match and will be expected to take part in the third-place play-off on Saturday evening against Chile, who lost 3-0 to Peru earlier this week.
