Colombia head to Copa semis after penalties win over Uruguay

Brasilia – Colombia beat Uruguay 4-2 on penalties after a tense 0-0 draw in their Copa America quarterfinal on Saturday to move into a last four date with either Argentina or Ecuador, reported Reuters.

David Ospina saved spotkicks from Jose Maria Gimenez and Matias Vina while Colombia scored their first four to progress following a nervy encounter in Brasilia.

Colombia, who have won this title only once back in 2001, will take on the winner of Saturday’s later quarterfinal between Argentina and Ecuador.

Host Brazil face Peru in the other semifinal.
