Colombia were defending with all they had in them. Several yellow cards were given, as some of the tackles and responses were over the line. Four penalty kicks were given to Argentina, three of which they scored.
In the second half the pressure was still on the Colombian goal, Argentina didn't let up. When Hernando Romussi scored the liberating sixth the party was on for Argentina. With the seven goals the passed USA in the standing and were sure they would play in the final.
