Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +3 FULL-TIME: ARGENTINA 3-0 COLOMBIA.
90' +2 OFF THE POST! From a nearly identical spot to where Messi scored from in the first half, James comes agonisingly close to providing Colombia with a bit of consolation from a free-kick of his own, but his effort smacks off the woodwork with Romero rooted to his spot!
90' There will be two minutes added on at the end of this match.
89' What a response this has been from Argentina and Lionel Messi in particular. He had the wolves after him following a string of poor performances, while Bauza's job and Argentina's qualifying hopes were hanging in the balance following a 3-0 defeat to Brazil on Thursday, but they've completely flipped the script here tonight.
87' STAT: Argentina are winless in their last four qualifying matches (D2, L2). They have not gone five without a victory since 2007-2008 (D4, L1).
85' M. Acuña enters the game and replaces Á. Di María.
Argentina's final change sees Marcos Acuna replace Di Maria.
84' Á. Di María has scored a goal for Argentina! Assist by L. Messi.
Two assists for Messi now to go with his goal.
THREE POINTS WRAPPED UP IN STYLE! Messi the architecht again, stripping Murillo of possession on the far touchline, sprinting into the area and squaring for Di Maria who hammers it into the empty net!
83' Better, this, from Colombia. Cuadrado's corner is an inviting one, but Murillo's header deflects behind for another. The resulting delivery comes to nothing, but pressure stays on before Copete flashes a shot wide of the far post from 20 yards.
81' Colombia aren't showing any signs of being able to trouble Argentina over these final 10 minutes, with the three points looking all but secured now for the Albiceleste. Bacca's arrival has provided a bit of a spark, but nothing still to test Romero.
79' G. Higuaín enters the game and replaces L. Pratto.
Argentina's second switch sees Gonzalo Higuain come on for Pratto, who walks off to a loud ovation.
