Copa America Semi-final : Paraguay 0-0 Venezuela - Paraguay win on pens

Paraguay have qualified for the Copa America final after defeating Venezuela 5-3 on penalties after a scoreless 120 minutes of football in Mendoza.

The semi-final was a conservative affair although Venezuela did have a goal disallowed for offside in the first half and also hit the post.

Jonathan Santana was sent off in the 102nd minute - but Venezuela were unable to take advantage of the extra space.

In the end it went to a penalty shootout - and most penalties were accurate with Paraguay goalkeeper Justo Villar's save from Franklin Lucena enough to see Paraguay through.
