Argentina, led by the talents of Lionel Messi, were considered one of the favourites for the tournament, but on Wednesday morning they slumped to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Brazil in the first semifinal in Belo Horizonte.

La Albiceleste have struggled to find their best form throughout the tournament, having only finished second in Group B (after a loss to Colombia, draw with Paraguay and 2-0 win over Qatar), before defeating Venezuela 2-0 in the quarterfinals.
